Yesterday was mostly a travel day. It'd be hard to describe it as "brutal" because I've flown to India and back, but it was hard. They couldn't seem to get a gate for our plane leaving Mexico, and we left an hour or so late after being shuffled all the way across the terminal. That hour was a big chunk out of our layover in LAX, which had a huge impact because we flew into a terminal with no international arrivals area, so they bussed us across the airport, then we had to walk back across (outside, due to construction) to get to the gate for the Seattle flight. We got there with plenty of time to spare, but we arrived sweaty and exhausted, and much of the plane's functions weren't working while it was on the ground, so we were warm and sweaty, with no bathrooms, until we got to 10,000 feet.
Otherwise, the flights were nice. We flew first class every leg this trip, so I got to watch Bridget Jones' Baby, which I might have taken a while to get around to otherwise, and Nerve, which I really wanted to see. The meals were good, and so was the tequila, though they never seem to bring enough of that.( Vacation round-up...Collapse )
