Day 6: London

Today was the day we were to fly to Syria. No doubt you have heard about the closing of all the air space in Great Britain and now many other parts of Europe because of the volcano in Iceland spewing a combination of glass, sand and rock which is catastrophic to airplane engines flying through it. We learned first thing this morning that our flight this afternoon was canceled and that we are rescheduled for Monday. We are hopeful but it is entirely possible that that flight could be canceled as well. It all depends on the volcano and this plume of stuff moving south and east at about 25 miles per hour.

So we unexpectedly have a weekend in London to do as we please. More to come.

Kathy -- your posts are sooo descriptive ...just like being there. It makes me remember the time we bumped into Katherine and you at the Rodin museum in Paris. Enjoy the trip!
