ROME - SPRING 2017
We are back in Rome for our spring month. This time we will stay until May 3rd. We have no guests scheduled to visit us but we always hope some will somehow know we are here and contact us.
Not a good flight over. On the runway in Washington waiting to take off the power went off shutting off lights and air conditioner. Although it was not hot outside with no AC the plane got very hot quickly. One and a half hours later we were told they did not fix the problem but the pilot felt he could fly without the backup auxiliary system. Not sure I liked that but we did take off and obviously made it. Flight was bumpy enough at times that the pilot had the stewards sit down.
At the airport they have put up a sign 'Welcome to Airport'. We stopped to take the attached photo. It is obviously for kids since we had to get on our knees to take the photo.
