Hello, I am finally in Ecuador. The flight was uneventful.
My son, who is also painting decided to pack his guerrilla cigar box in his lugage. I took the oil paints in mine. Well his luggage and half of his cloth never made it. American Airline assure the luggage arrived. Maybe, somebody took it by mistake
Lesson learned pack your pochade box in a carry on. Make sure your luggage has good identification tag. You can always find oil painting at your destination but not your equipment.
