In other news—not fake, believe me!—I get to spend a week in Boston, thanks to two airlines who will not get my business in the future. (A similar stunt by the same two airlines cost me $600 and a sleepless night in JFK last year.)
The upside is that it gives me time to accomplish some things I wanted to do before leaving but didn’t have the chance earlier. And to wander around my wife’s favorite city a bit.
Yesterday, went to Walmart and bought a replacement for a carry-on bag that has seen its last days. This morning, had a “Central American Breakfast” that was quite good. This afternoon, bought a refurbished laptop with a one-year warranty to replace my five-year-old one which is occasionally misbehaving. Tomorrow, plan to visit the Spanish Consulate to ask questions about my visa & ID.
