Hello.

Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

"The leadership course ended several hours ago, although the passage of time has not lessened in the least the fury of Janet, who after travel for two hours and recently arrived at her apartment, slamming the door."

Thanks.

I would not use the passage of time for such a short period. I associate the phrase with longer cycles, like years.
