Roma, Italia Day XIV November 19, 2011
We had a leisurely last breakfast at the Hotel Fellini. We finished packing the last minute items, settled the hotel bill and called a cab to take us to the airport. The airport went smoothly. The girls got some Limoncello from the duty-free and bought a T-shirt that has disappeared! Our US Airways flight was full about 300 people packed very tightly. There was not enough room for our arms! It is a 9-10 hour flight. We went right to customs where we queued for two hours to talk with the customs agent about what we brought into the country. We then went to get our luggage. Molly has a Nexxus pass which allows her to go to a kiosk and then right on through. She was sitting and waiting with our luggage. We then put our luggage on a conveyer belt and went to board our next 6 hour flight to Seattle. This plane was smaller, fewer people and we had plenty of room. We all took naps, finally. We arrived about 30" minutes late but J and Drew were waiting for us and Max was in the cell phone lot waiting for Molly. It is 25 degrees here with snow still on some surfaces! BRRRRRRRRR!
