The day has finally arrived for our flight to Bangkok, Thailand. We’re up and our the door at 5am to drive the first 20 of the 60 miles to LAX in rush hour traffic moving along at a blistering 20mph average speed. We left home early this morning just because this can happen here.
Looking out the window all you can see is frozen tundra, snow covered mountains, icebergs and frozen over waterways with openings in the water. Crossing down thru Siberia there is nothing but a starkly beautiful, frozen wasteland.
Crossing the International dateline into tomorrow and continuing south toward Beijing the skies begin to brighten as our sunset appears to have become a sunrise even tho it will be setting in just a few hours, after we land in China.
