As the plane turned north out of LAX you can see the Malibu coastline. See any stars skinny-dipping?
I set off the alarms at the airport with my suspenders which had metals clips, metal gromets on my shoes and even a roll of Lifesavers in my pocket.  The guy who did my body search was thorough but nice.  Naturally we had to wait in the terminal for nearly four hours, but spent the time watching people and planes.  I have always loved to watch people, and the planes carry such great color schemes.  The flight out was via KLM 747 and with me being big, was uncomfortable.  They served two good meals on the flight from Los Angeles to Amsterdam, Holland.  I had Chicken and rice, asian style and my wife had Alfredo noodles with spinich. Even wine! A nice Reesling and a red that I couldn't name.  It was hard to move with 3 seats. My wife had the window seat and I was in the middle seat with another gentleman in the aisle seat.  So tried to get comfortable, relax, and eventually fell asleep. The morning meal with about two hours left of the flight was a sausage patty in a buiscut, a cup of yogurt, cup of pears, an oatmeal bar, cup of coffee. Again, good food (for a plane). Arrived in Amsterdam at about 11 a.m on Monday an hour ahead of schedule.

You're so lucky that you can sleep on a plane. I just can't do it :) and good food on the plane as well. I'm jealous!
