... 8217;s just time to wait for the end of the flight. We dozed and watched movies as we each have a screen on the back of the seat in front of us. I watched The Monuments Men as Karen Pappas (a friend from high school) had noted from our FB photos that the Madonna and Child in Bruges was the same as the one in this movie. That was exciting!
