Been travelling

I was flying United last week when all their computers crashed. For over 2 hours we sat in the aircraft at the end of the runway at YVR, unable to take off because the pilot could not receive the load figures. By the time we arrived at the Chicago hub so many connecting flights had been missed that the place was in chaos. I spent most of the day marooned in O’hare airport. It was hot, and I found that it was coolest in the long passage that connects the island concourses of Terminal 1 under the tarmac.

I remember once the thrill of visiting the seat of western power and influence. Somehow, the glory seems to be fading.

It is good to arrive home.
