Fly Home - Rome to Atlanta to SFO

After a filling breakfast, we left our hotel at 8:55 and took the Leonardo Express to the airport.  It seemed so easy when we walked into Terminal 3, but soon we realized we needed to go to Terminal 5.  We took an airport shuttle to T5, stood in line, went through two security check points, stood in another line, then dropped off our bags and took another bus back to T3, a good 50 minutes of check points and passport checks. 

We had an hour or so wait for our flight to Atlanta.  I read and watched movies most of the way.  I watched Black Mass, a gritty gangster film staring Johnny Depp, and the Cohen Brothers' Hail Caesar. 

We caught our connecting flight in Atlanta and left for San Francisco around 5 p.m.  Unfortunately, Alice misplaced her iPhone between flights.  She realized she didn't have it at our boarding gate to SF.  Delta was little help in connecting with someone on the Rome flight we'd just left.  When we arrived home, we filled out a lost property form, but I seriously doubt we'll ever see the phone again.  The phone is replaceable, but the pictures inside them aren't.  Oh well.

The final leg of our trip was quite and uneventful.  I listened to music and tried to sleep.  We arrived in San Francisco around 11 p.m. and took a Lyft car back to Alice's.  We were in bed by 12:30 a.m.  What a trip!  I won't forget how wonderful this trip was.  I won't forget Rome and Barcelona, two cities I need to return to.
