Ahh, back home!

clouds.jpgGot back from the visit to Santa Clara yesterday evening. A day later than originally planned. United’s computer system was down at the San Jose airport. It showed the value of checking in on-line beforehand. I had a boarding pass but needed to check my bags. That they could do: a hand written slip they attached to the bags and I was off to the gate while everybody else who hadn’t checked in on-line was still awaiting United sorting out their computer difficulties.

There was a little addition to the security procedures at this airport: they want to see your boarding pass now three times. Of course they already check your ID against your boarding pass before you get to the security gate. Then they look at the boarding pass again just after going through the metal detector. That already has me curious about what possibly coud have happened between the ID check just before and here because you’re already in a secure area. Now, they want to look at the boarding pass again when you leave the security check area – ie after you picked up all your stuff, put your shoes back, your belt etc etc. Which really makes one wonder: what could possibly happen between that point and just the moment before where you walked through the metal detector? I can’t help it but I find such things irksome.

On the way to Washington Dulles I felt nostalgic and first watched “En un momento dada” (you’ll need to be either Dutch or Spanish – preferably Catalan – to enjoy that one) and then Neil Young’s Heart of Gold. In between I exercised my new hobby of taking pictures from the plane. You can see the results in the updated “In Flight” gallery. Myself I am quite happy with the cloud pictures.
