I just got off a plane and took a ridiculously expensive cab to my hotel, but I thought I would make a quick post to say that I’m in Kansas through Thursday, and then will then be in Oklahoma through Tuesday. The flights were uneventful, the airport bagel passable, the apparel and footwear of fellow travelers incomprehensible. Surely there is something between platform heels and worn out flip flops. Do you really want to walk barefoot through security? How can someone fall asleep and start snoring before the plane even takes off? Why does self check-in not seem to shorten the baggage drop line at all? I did like seeing the great lakes from the window and the clouds were mesmerizing. From Chicago to Kansas City, the setting sun created a rainbow of colors that edged around the whole horizon.
All I’ve seen in Kansas City so far are the lights of chain restaurants…so many I had forgotten. I can see a JCPenney from my hotel window. So glamorous. I don’t know if I’ll have any adventuring opportunities, as this is a “business trip,” but we shall see.
