>>> it's something travellers dread. a flight delay that leaves you stranded on the tarmac for hours with nothing to do. members of the philadelphia orchesa on tour in china broke out their instruments as they waited on the ground in beijing and treated their fellow passengers to a string quartet by dvorjak. what a good idea.
