We had a rather uneventful flight from Rome to Cleveland, though our check-in experience was one of the easiest ever. All seven of our bags arrived at our final destination and after 24 hours of being awake we finally hit the sack around midnight Saturday.
We are staying at Valerie’s sister’s house where our car and personal belongings have been stored. Since this was a holiday week-end we took advantage of some of the events in Cleveland like enjoying gyros at a Greek Festival (America’s version of una sagra) on Sunday and Monday we enjoyed a small parade nearby celebrating Memorial Day. Nothing speaks of Americana like a parade.
The jet-lag seems to be subsiding and we are getting settled in and have a few weeks of family commitments before we can put a great deal of concerted effort into determining our near future here in the USA.
