De bobsleemeisjes zijn op weg naar Amerika voor de allerlaatste America Cup van het seizoen. Deze nacht kwam de volgende mail binnen, in het Engels omdat Sigi haar Nederlands nog slechter is dan het Engels van Paul Neagu en mijn Duits:
Hey Sigi, Geert and Rudi!
We had a travel day from hell!!!! Murphy was all over us today.
Story about the day: first plane had a delay of almost 7h (departure at 15h45 instead of 8h50), so we had to take a later connection flight to Montréal and surprise, surprise: also this plane was delayed (departure at 23h30 instead of 21h15). We arrived in Montréal at 1h in the morning (6h in Belgium) and (despite the fact that they knew we were going to be late) the rental car company was already closed... So next step: book a hotel in Montréal and that is were we are now... at 3h (8h in Belgium) we can finally go asleep! 27h of no sleep, pfff, that's hard!
Tomorrow we will arrive probably in the late afternoon in Lake Placid...
