The really good news is it appears they have the internet set up now so that I will be able to send pictures. Today there are none to send but they have a card reader attached to the computer now so look for pictures of Stockholm tomorrow.
We boarded our Delta flight in Orlando and had a smooth flight to Altanta. Once boarded in Atlanta we were next in line to take off when the pilot came on and said they had stopped all northbound flights until further notice. The traffic control computers in DC were shut down. With only a one hour layover in Paris for our flight to Copenhagen we sat on the tarmac in Atlanta for four hours. Those of you familiar with our experience on our Hawaiian trip will understand the anxiety we went through. The flight to Paris was long if not comfortable and we were able to get a flight to Copenhagen in time to board our ship. Of course, I almost lost Al in the process. We had very bad luck this time with wheel chair help. In Atlanta his name wasn't even on the list. In Paris he had to wait at the plane while I went for our transfers and the wheelchair attendant didn't bring him to where I was. I fortunately found a very helpful gentleman who dedicated almost an hour to finding him and we were lucky enough to be reunited just in time to make our flight. It was a long and tiring day and a half. Once on board we two hooked up with my brother, went for dinner and then collapsed for a good nights sleep.
