Day 7: London

The flight we have scheduled for tomorrow, Monday, is most likely going to be canceled. Apparently the airlines are taking up a small number of planes to see if they might be able to resume some flights. Meanwhile the back log of people and produce just keeps piling up around the world, causing hardships, financial losses, and endless uncertainty for thousands upon thousands of people. In relative terms, we are in good shape. We are staying in a beautiful city in a nice hotel and are slowly developing our options. At this point we think it unlikely that we will fly to Syria this week, but next week is a possibility.

I just finished the Steig Larrson book The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest and this afternoon we’re going to see the Swedish movie of his first book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Then to dinner with Chris Kuelling, another stranded compatriot, who is married to Katherine’s dear cousin, Sibyl.
