We have safely arrived in Greece and I'm bitching as always. It's hot, it is so hot that I'm sure an egg would fry on the sidewalk. The thermometer showed a whopping 41C yesterday. Human nature I suppose, we complain when it's too cold and we complain when it's too hot. My sweetie on the other hand, loves this weather.
I've been in the Mediterranean and it was heaven. My BIL took us out on his boat and we spent hours in the water. I look like of funny wearing a lifebelt around my waist and a noodle under my arms and everyone kind of laughs at me but what the heck, better to look silly than drown. I'm not a swimmer and if my footsies can't touch bottom I panic.
Our trip was close to ten hours and I wish I could say something nice about Air Canada. I seem to have problems with airlines but this airline beats anything I've endured for my last five trips. We were lied to regarding cost of extra luggage and and pre booked seats. I swallowed the extra cost and decided to settle into the seat given without complaint. But the food, oh my god the food... the only thing I can say about the food is that I wouldn't feed it to my dog if I had one.
We were given dinner within the first hour of flight (on a ten hour trip) and it consisted of a small piece of chicken, a serving of rice, a small bowl of cold corn, a teeny weeny bun and a small piece of chocolate cake. I asked them if if there was more food available and was informed there would be a continental breakfast within an hour and a half of landing. I asked would there be anything offered in between and was told, nope, that's it. Could I buy some food I asked and again the answer was no.
Let me tell you about the wonderful continental breakfast. There was one muffin which my husband told me tasted like straw (and he's not fussy), one small yogurt (which I hate) and juice and coffee. I didn't eat any breakfast but did ask for two glasses of juice and coffee which was grudgingly provided. Good thing I had some power bars and chocolate bars in my carry one and that carried me through the flight. You do have wonder though how on a flight that costs over fourteen hundred dollars a ticket they can justify giving their passengers such a cheap meal. I figure that it didn't even cost them 5 bucks and that's being generous.
I am putting this out of my mind for the time being and when it's time to fly home I will be sure to have a packed lunch with me.
I'll write again when I get internet again. For the moment I'm borrowing my neighbors mobile WIFI stick.
