I am sitting at JFK airport waiting to board my Emirates flight 204 to Dubai. Now that I am checked in and through security A OK, the excitement of this adventure is setting in.
I have the right mix of magazines (People, The Economist, Entertainment Weekly, and Domino) all ready to go. I arranged departure from JFK (not exactly the closest airport to Windsor!) when I found a flight on Emirates (which Mike and I had flown to Turkey in 2005) for a good price. If the opportunity ever arises to fly this beauty of an airline, DO IT! The food is almost really good, hundreds of movies and tv shows, you get to hear everything in English and then Arabic (just cool) and they wear kind of odd, but chic, uniforms.
I really enjoy the traveling part of traveling (once I get out of security and customs) and find airports such an interesting liminal space of transition and energy. I think this is going to be the best business trip ever - not that I have every taken a business trip but I am starting off right! I have no idea what the internet will be like in India with our friends, but I hope to stay up to date with what I do and find. Who knows, maybe I can update on what I watched and ate on the plane?
