Some airports…

beijing_airport-3

This is got to be the busiest airport I have ever been to… and the smells are nothing like I have ever smelled.  This was a very interesting experience.  Not to mention that my flight out was delayed by six hour; six of which I’ve spent standing, trying not to fall asleep, in a crowd […]

Why no move in?

Perhaps there is some irony in this.  I am flying to the country that is was in economic decay for so many years, a country that could barely manage its vast population, from an airport in a dying city.  To China from Detroit.  Do you not see the irony here?  Well, I do.  But what […]
