The Med

Just a note to let you know I've not decided to become a zen monk, but am still around.  Internet communication has not been as reliable as I'd thought, so may not post much until I'm back in a couple weeks. However, here I am in the Grimaldi's private territory....

Arrived yesterday at 10am after a uneventful, turbulence-free flight in business class, without a wink of sleep.  Who knows why, I had intentions of getting at least 4 hours.

I did manage to choke down some excellent calamari fritti and pizza before succumbing though. 

Today it's over to the coast to join the ship.

They're are not laughing with us ....

A prediction:  Yesterdays incident will not even make the national news, above the fold, in a year. 

I've said it all before, it's just getting boring and tedious to repeat. I expect there are at least 10 families out there who are freshly torn up, but that's how it goes, eh? Price we pay......
