Jim and I were up at 3am on Thursday to catch a flight in Columbus, OH to Chicago, IL to change airlines in San Francisco to Singapore Air to land at our final destination: Seoul, South Korea.
I love flying over the US. The checkerboarded farmland looks so much more interesting from the sky then from a car. The openess and diversity of the landscape is really obvious and makes for all kinds of speculation on cultural values linked to space, invention, and the free spirit. One of the amazing things about flying over the western part of the country in particular, is how little of the US has actually been developed. We flew for hours without seeing much besides some farms and wide open patches of contrasting mountains and desert.
On the flight, I had been confused when I booked the tickets. It looked like I had to choose a meal, and they all had weird descriptions like no sodium, lowfat, bland …. I picked Hindu, because I know I like Indian food. Well, it turns out I didn’t have to pick anything, it was only for special requests, so our meal comes out, different from everyone else’s around us and Jim is quite suspicious of the meat. I’m pretty sure it was goat.
