Off the Road...

Interesting facts, experiences and opinions from the road:

  • Aircraft flown in order since 2/22. Boeing 737, 747, 777, Airbus 320, Boeing 777 and 767.

  • Upper Deck Business Class on the 747 makes flying a different experience

  • Never fly the low cost carries in India or China unless you are a midget

  • People line up differently in different countries. India has been the worst so far. There is no allowance for personal space

  • Terminal 5 at Heathrow is amazing in it's design and architecture.

  • There were more people at the Chennai International at 3am on Sunday than at San Jose International at 5pm on Friday

Thee should be a place to exercise on flights longer than 2.5 hours.

Goodbye Terminal 5...

Everyone may hate the baggage handling at T5 at Heathrow but it is a good looking Terminal.

Hoofing it is taking on a new meaning. Having traveled to Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Chennai, and Pune the past 12 days it was humorous to see these little guys outside the hotel in Chennai:
I was able to sneak in some sight seeing on 2/28 and visit Mahabalipuram:

The pictures do not do the place justice. Also the traffic getting to some of these sights makes rush hour on the 405 Freeway in L.A. look likea Formula 1 race.

And here was the sign greeting my last stop in sightseeing:
