Our itinerary went like this – leave the apartment in Rio at 4 pm on Saturday the 19th, arrive Paris CDG at 8:15 am on the 20th, catch the flight to Rome at 9:45, arrive Rome 11:30 am, be at Mirella’s apartment in time for a lunch before taking a shower and a nap. Dinner Party with special guests 8:00 PM.
will arrive in Rome a little more than an hour later that anticipated. Still a good plan.
On arrival - New flight to Rome canceled…. Earliest available seat 5:10 pm. (only 9 hour delay) but will also miss dinner party planned to celebrate our visit – disaster for Mirella – lots of food prepared in advance.
We head for the apartment in Rome – only takes 25 minutes no traffic on the road. I am pretty sure our 10 hour trip took 28 hours. The luggage arrives, we leave the next morning to return to our holiday in Paris….. The carousel goes round and round…. What are the odds….????
New shirts and underwear purchased in Rome in the luggage, heavy coat in the luggage….
