  Yep, as always, Dale got it right.

   The "Collins Cobuild Advanced Dictionary" says baggage is uncountanble (it has U marked beside it). 

 

   So "All the passengers carried their own baggages. ( existe erro aqui?)"

would be rephrase to "All the passengers carried their own baggage".

 

 

   Funy enough, the Collins gives the example:  "The  passengers went throug immigration control and collected their baggage."

    Thanks Dale, I knew the rule but certainly I wouldn´t recall without some time thinking about it.

    And guy, later on I will try to think them over, the remaining ones.   Now I am in

a soup, Gosh!   I have plenty in my plate.        I hope being moving on June and there

are plenty of arrangements to make, in the middle of all that comes these boys with

Maths homeworks, having to replace the car radiator and all that jazz. 

    Kinda killing a lion a day. 

    Anyway I have to run and fast! as in:

Every day in Africa a gazelle wakes up.
"It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows that it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle.
"When the sun comes up, you better be running.
