Flight delay

Alright, a quick note--

I'm writing this message from the Madrid, Spain airport. I've never before been so happy to have my flight delayed an hour.... it has given me just enough time to check all of my messages and web sites before having to jump on another plane.

Today, we woke up at 5 AM and took a private speed boat to the Venice airport. From Venice, we flew here to Madrid and from here, we'll fly to the Canary Islands in Spain.

The past few days have been great. I really really enjoyed Venice. It was small and there were no cars or bicycles. Everyone walked or took a boat.

Tomorrow, we're spending the day at a spa. I'll be getting a fruit wrap, a 'botanical bath,' a massage, a facial, and a manicure and pedicure. After all of the traveling so far, I'm really looking forward to this. It will be nice to take a day to just relax.

Then, I think the next day we may take a camel ride to the top of a volcano that's on the island where we're staying. Raul (my RPI friend in NYC) says that this is the thing to do, so I think we'll try it.

BoRyan and I will be alone on this leg of the trip and we'll be renting our own car this time. Thank goodness for the car!

Okay, I should go. Amazingly, it costs around $7 per 30 minutes to use the internet here... and that's not terribly marked up compared to the other prices we've seen around Europe.
