    The baggage of a jet setter

    International jet setter Baron Enrico di Portanova, grandson of Texas oil magnate Hugh Roy Cullen, and his wife travelled on their own private Lear jet. It wasn’t big enough to haul all their baggage, which normally followed on commercial airlines with the servants. When Baron di Portanova died in March, 2000 he left behind a charming retreat. “The spectacular di Portanova villa in Acapulco,” reported The New York Times, “has 28 bedrooms, 26 baths, five kitchens (the baron was proud of his culinary skills, specializing in caviar tossed with tagliolini), four swimming pools, indoor waterfalls, a nightclub, a tower manned by guards with machine guns, and a rooftop helicopter landing pad.”
