We should be in Florence now, enjoying some pizza and pasta. Instead, we are in Munich. Our flight from Zagreb was delayed, meaning we missed our connection and we are spending the night here, onto Florence in the morning. The airline is putting us up and giving us dinner. We think we have located a few decks of cards meaning a gin rummy tournament is about to break out. What some might think of as a problem we are looking at as an adventure. We learned a great lesson about the difference between US and EU policy toward airline passengers and their rights when things go wrong. We are safe, warm, in a great hotel enjoying a full dinner, all on Lufthansa’s tab. If we were in the states, we’d probably be on the airport floor, buying our own hot dogs.
See you tomorrow, Michaelangleo.
