Beautiful weather for much of the day. To the airport bright and early to collect friends from the US. The Ryanair flight from London to Perugia was almost completely full and for the first time in ages the arrival terminal was echoing to the sound of American accents - it's Spring Break time . There was a pronounced absence of American visitors here in 2007 and 2008 due to the weak dollar versus the Euro, but this year things have reversed somewhat and the greenback is once again allowing travel abroad. I still don't think there will be enough foreign visitors this year to meet the expectations of the local restaurant and hotel owners - but we shall see.The boyz are adjusting slowly to the house filling up with fresh faces.Will post tomorrow. Did notice that Ryanair has all sorts of supplemental charges for desk check-in and luggage that make me wonder if it is cheap an option as it is made out to be. Will cost BA v Ryanair to Rome for out next visitors.
