On Monday, Pam and I drove down to Seattle, where we stayed at the Raddison hotel, by the entrance to the airport. She slept well, despite more than the usual amount of ‘travel butterflies’. Given that she was headed to Antarctica, I can imagine why there might be some of those.
We said our good-byes Tuesday morning by the airport loading zone (as shown above). I didn’t hear from her during her layover in Los Angeles, but got an email on Wednesday morning from her that explained why:
“I was quite nervous at that point, in LAX. The Seattle leg was a little delayed but the distance between domestic and international terminals was unmarked. I didn’t know how far away it was. The airport is being reno’d and you had to walk outside to get to the Int’l terminal. How odd for a city that only drives.”
The next photos she put on Flickr are of her hotel in Santiago, Chile. It certainly looks luxurious, and I think it would make a nice destination in and of itself.
