Yesterday we left Saskatoon quite late in the afternoon, about 5 p.m., since our plane was running late. It had been a while since I sat by the window on an airplane, and I realized that it was sort of fun. We flew to Denver for the connecting flight, and at one point I awoke from a little nap to find that we were traveling over mountainous, snowy Colorado,
It was pretty late when we finally got to L.A. (we went to San Francisco first, and waited there quite a while), and so the streets were pretty quiet on the cab ride in. It was also dark. But even so, I felt some excitement at being in this city of angels. Most of my traveling in the U.S. has been on the east coast in the past several years, and it has a different feeling than here.
We're staying on the 10th floor of a hotel in Little Tokyo, one of the 16 downtown districts. When I awoke this morning and moved the drapes aside, I was delighted to see the mountains. The Sierra Nevadas. I drove up there one time 25 years ago to the Edwards Air force base to see the second landing of the space shuttle. That was an amazing experience, as we were all out there waiting and then we heard the big boom as it broke the sound barrier coming in to land.
Can you see the houses built up into the hills?
This is the view of the street below from the window.
