This trip has problems

It's never a good sign when your taxi can't make it to the door of your hotel because there are a couple firetrucks right in front of it. Fortunately, there wasn't a fire in the hotel, just some people who had to be rescued from a stuck elevator.

That meant, however, that none of the elevators were running. So I couldn't get up to my room. It was only about a 15 minute wait, though.

Last night I noticed I had forgetten to pack a few of my toiletries.

This morning we woke up to find we had no electricity. The phone did work, and the deskperson told us there was a power outage in the downtown Boston area. She said it would probably be out for hours. Fortunately I have my emergency radio/flashlight/cellphone charger, as well as a smaller hand-powered flashlight. So we had enough light to take showers, etc. (The hot water was working.) After that the power did come back on.

I wonder what the next mishap of the trip will be.

Oh, lordy Caprice. Let's hope that this is the end of the mishaps. I noticed that you updated your self-description.
Well, here's to no more problems and a happy Thanksgiving.
