After much anticipation, Teresa and I were on our way to the airport driven by my daughter Jessica. As instructed, we were there three hours early which gave us plenty of
time to have a delicious sandwich and salad at Capstone Brewing Company. Tom Karlo, KPBS public broadcast station manager, and his wife Julie had arrived even earlier. He was busy downloading a movie onto his tablet when we found him.
Finally it was boarding time and we noted that our boarding passes gave us the elite distinction of “World Traveler”. This qualified us to go through a separate door, next to the regular door, which allowed us to join the passengers going through that door at the same rate, at the same time. We never found out what that was all about.
Our meals, Chicken Tikka, was not all that bad, considering it was an airline meal. However if you’re going to try a South African wine, I would advise you to stay away from Cape Springs Pinotago. Not that great.
We were on our way.
