Saturday 16 May
We flew off to Split, Croatia, today for the triennial meeting of ASMOSIA, otherwise known as the Marble Mafia. The best way to get there is via Germany, so we went via Lufthansa.
In past years their food was rather good, but not now; even Delta's pallid sky-chicken is better than the soggy, uniform blandness of the chicken, spaetzle, and boiled vegetables they confronted us with.
They were even chintzy with the wine, not a good thing when you want your charges to nod off and leave you alone.
