So I've been trying to figure out how to reduce some of the weight of my back pack. Well, Lufthansa did it for me. They lost it. I've arrived in Rome without my clothes and hair product. But I'm in a nice bungalow somewhere in Rome. I'm going to try to get my paperwork together to apply for my China visa tomorrow and keep praying that the bag turns up before the clothes I'm wearing are too ratty. Wish me luck.
