The Joys of Air Travel

A long wait taxing at O'Hare, on the way back to Shanghai earlier this month....

We sat on the plane for a very long time before we took off.  Long enough that I napped and kind of lost track of time.

At least there was no connecting flight to be made.  Like the day we went from Fairbanks to Houston via Minneapolis just a couple of weeks before.  A long run through a big airport with 2 kids.  We made it, seat to seat, in 10 minutes — just before the door to the flight closed.

And then sat waiting 20 minutes for any news of takeoff.
