Two travel updates: (1) I have news from Katie that she and her co-adventurer have arrived safely in Florence, and are enjoying themselves greatly. They'll stay there again tonight before heading on to Siena. (2) The Dublin Airport's website reports that Aer Lingus flight 124 from Chicago is delayed, with a new arrival time estimated as 8:46 (Dublin time); and now we see that they have landed safely at 8:55.
