Some folks look at travel as a way to move between places. I am little different – I like to be somehow an active participant in the process – not just “a human cargo”. There is plenty to see in any airport terminal.

Constant movement

Behind the glass windows, there is a constant ballet of vehicles, planes and people going somewhere. It may look a little bit chaotic but I am pretty much sure that all the movement is carefully choreographed.

The fuel, food, our bags and some other stuff are being delivered to the planes. This is a truly amazing process. We get mad because our bags get delayed but if you think about the volume of the luggage = one missing or misplaced bag becomes insignificant. 🙂

The old joke comes to mind “You can have breakfast in NYC and dinner in Paris, but your bags are in Tokyo.”
