Houston, TX 16 Oct. 2009. This weekend, I have three plans in mind:
- Iguasu Falls, Argentina (IGR)
- Las Vegas, NV (LAS) for Blogworld
- London, England (LHR)
I got to the airport with plenty of time to spare as I needed to get some tickets for the journey. Just before doing that I went up to the roof of the parking and off in the distance I saw Air Force One; yup, the President of the United States, Barack Obama was in town for a benefit. I think this was my first time taking a photo of this majestic Boeing 747 derivative.
I entered the airport without any incident, got my tickets and then headed to the Presidents Club for eats and a drink or two. I did notice that the airplane was not at the gate and thought that was strange. Anyway, at about 8:00p, it was disclosed that the airplane would show in about twenty minutes so we should stay seated. Well, this soon changed to a 9:30p departure, then a the airplane should be at the gate at 9:30p and finally to a set departure time of 12:30a.
This new time meant I could not make the journey as I would not be able to connect with the intended flights from Buenos Aires’ downtown airport to Iguasu. With that I closed the door on heading south tonight.
Option 3 was no longer available as the London flight had departed at 6:25p, so Las Vegas it is. Except that the last flight was at 9:30p. No worries, I’ll take the 7:35a tomorrow. See you then.
