We arrived and are safely ensconced in the Victorian splendor of the Mount Lavinia Hotel. It is on a small headland sticking into the Indian Ocean, withers the breeze blowing and perfect pool temperature and brilliant food. Catching up with family and generally eating and eating. Evelyn spent hours in the pool.
The flights were long but uneventful (a good thing). We attempted to buy some whiskey as a gift from duty free in NY, but you are not allowed to bring duty free into Qatar (where we changed planes), however you are allowed to BUY duty free in Qatar, seems like a double standard to not allow carrying booze but they will sell it...
