Yep, no matter the language and whether or not you speak or understand it, you intuitively know what it means when you are standing in the boarding area and the last column on the flight announcement board lights up with something like:
cancelado, annulé, annullato, zrušen, storniert, ακυρώθηκε, отменен
Facial expressions change dramatically for the worst.
Cellular phones are frantically dialed and pressed to ears.

We have ceased selfishly collecting/hoarding hotel toiletries....you know, those cute little bottles and bars of soap you probably wouldn't find or consider buying back home.
We've changed (at least somewhat modified) our pilfering ways!
OK, not totally, since we do save a few of the more luxurious items.....using them in our master bath or tucking them in the guest room and powder room for use by house guests.
Why the change?

When flying to Argentina out of Miami International Airport, we find it is better to arrive about 3 1/2 hours prior to our scheduled departure. Once aboard and settled, maybe a glass of Malbec (skip the meal and entertainment) and try to spend the next 8 3/4 hours of confinement to various stages of sleep. With any luck, we arrive on time, speedily disembarking at Santiago's Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport and head for the lower level of the transit passenger area.
Our first visit to the property dates backs to when was originally operated as the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel Hollywood Beach Resort. Over the years, it was sold once or twice, eventually undergoing a major renovation and re-branded as the Marriott Hollywood Beach Hotel.
The first few years after the renovation and re-opening, management was first rate and the service was top notch. Even though the rooms were still somewhat cramped
Back in September 2004, we drove through Vero Beach, Florida and observed the carnage two back to back hurricanes had delivered. We wondered how long it would take for the community to recover and rebuild the numerous destroyed hotels and business structures in this very special place.
Amazing what a $50 million dollar infusion, plus the vision and inspiration of a power couple like Gloria and Emilio Estefan, can do for a small devastated hotel on a lovely stretch of Florida beach.
