Can't Leave Early

... but at least it's all over. The Embassy visit went fine.

Delta said that the only way we could take the available seats on earlier flights was to pay $2800 extra FOR EACH ticket. We said no. Unless someone wants to donate that to us, then we'll call them back. :) As it is, we can't leave until Sunday as originally planned.

    Sorry to hear about that. At least you'll be home for Christmas just like the song sings ;)

    Call them back and demand that they change it for no additional charge.. or you'll leave them one of Elizabeth's "presents" in the bathroom - the one closest to the cockpit!!! Looking forward to seeing you!
