I am at the airport and ready to fly to Germany. I am ready for two weeks of watching TV without political ads.
I am a bit gephyrophobic, but have gotten used to driving over the San Mateo Bridge on the way to the airport.
However, it is a very beautiful drive over the bridge.
Yesterday was the 27th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake which damaged several bridges in the Bay Area. This didn’t help today.
However, I made it across the bridge and to the airport with plenty of time left to relax before the flight.
Here is the view from the United Club of planes that are getting ready to depart. The Air Canada plane nearest to me looks a bit small when compared to the others. It would be nice to go to Canada, but not where this one is headed.
Now to relax and get ready for the long flight. I hope I can get some good sleep as I will be very busy for the rest of the week and need to get over the jet lag as soon as possible.
