20090401 Sao Luis

Flying day.

Upon arrival in Sao Luis, after a quick swim in the pool, and a trip to the store (for snacks and drinks for the long day tomorrow), a thunderstorm (and dark) cancelled a trip to town.

So, I'm left with nothing but flying. Sorry. The pool at the hotel was quite, quite wonderful. Perfect water, nobody there, and more than just a rectangle filled with water (it had a bridge over it!) video.

Steve and Terry call for clearance, using the extra space in N850SJ created by the removal of one of the back seats. PILOTS! If you ever consider a trip like this, REMOVE YOUR EXTRA SEATS! It gives you a couple extra pounds, but more importantly, it gives you a LOT OF SPACE.
