128 malas, 4 cães e 1 criado

A Baronesa de Rothschild que faleceu recentemente tinha um sentido prático notório ao viajar apenas com o indispensével em termos de bagagem, como se depreende da legenda que o meu amigo Bill Miller fez para esta imagem do NORMANDIE no porto de Nova Iorque.
Bill Miller writes: "A friend once told me that when he visited the exquisite Normandie -- said to be most glamorous Atlantic liner of her time --- in the winter of 1939, he came across the Baroness Rothschild. She was sailing with her own servants, 4 dogs and -- in something of a record even for the stylish." French Line -- with 128 pieces of luggage.
