The Flyover States

Work brought me to Washington DC this week and as I fly home today, I do so passing high above the flyover states.  Throughout, I manage to stay productive – emailing and instant chatting with my coworkers courtesy of technical wizardry that is in-flight WiFi.

By most accounts just another workday, albeit this one high above the clouds.

Room With A View

Yesterday I spent all day flying from San Francisco to Washington DC for a quick work trip.  It was a long day of travel, but at least I have sufficient airline status that I can frequent the American Airlines lounges along the way and use inflight wifi for free.  Combined, these little perks allow for a mostly productive day while cruising at 30,000 feet.

I also have “elite” status with Hilton and Hyatt hotels – a sign that I spend too much time away from my own bed.  The hotels love to market certain perks associated with status … one being upgraded rooms.  Well today I awoke in a Hyatt Regency hotel – in an upgraded room no less, to this million dollar view of a mall parking lot.

Preevning … those precious 2-3 hours between the end of my work day, and start of my work evening.  Also a perfect time to sneak in a ride.

Halftime


 

I arrived to London this morning just as the city was awaking.  I’m Halfway to home.


 

Wandering the streets of New Delhi today I found myself taking respite in City Forest Hauzrani.  One of the few tranquil spots I’ve come across in this otherwise hectic city.  The park also offers shelter for dozens of stray dogs.

28 Hours


Nearly 28 hours ago I left San Fransisco to fly half way around the world to India.  A week from now I will repeat the process, but in reverse.

LA Sunrise

Work brings me to Los Angeles for a few days of meetings.  Pictured above is Today’s sunrise as I was standing from my hotel room balcony.  I was lucky enough to catch great colors – the iPhone camera simply does not do justice.

Oh, and LA is still one of my least favorite cities.
