This is just outside of Phoenix...

So my morning was hectic... Get up, scramble to finish packing, run out the door, forget a couple of things... like an F`ng watch!

Once at the terminal all I could find were tacky old woman’s Indian stone watches (after all, I was still in AZ). No sale!

Saw an interesting advertising on an in-flight magazine for a old cell phone buy back program 1800-248-5360 -- they will even pay for the postage. Also saw a cool quote: "I Think I am, therefore I am... I think" from George Carlin.

A couple of thoughts... travelling alone changes a few things. A little liberating in not being concerned about others or what they think (no offence to my gal), so logistically different. And my senses become sharper. I tend to notice more detail in my surroundings, everything is hyper-realistic, especially when it is new.

Half-way to Atlanta and I can already feel the Atlas in me shrugging.

Tight fit...
I have not been in Atlanta since the 96 Olympics.

I had some fish eye wine on the plane, not bad, not great, but never enough... so I hit the bar at the Atlanta airport. Ironically it was called "the bar." Met an interesting couple from Germany, all decked out in their uber cool uniforms. The woman was wearing a Nike watch, the one that doubles as a sweat band. I offered to buy it from her and she laughed in that snooty way and said with a thick accent "my watch is not for sale!" I offered $20 bucks... guess the dollar does not go very far with Europeans now-a-days.

Drank way too many Bass Ales while having an interesting conversation with a RV salesman from Indiana. He had actually been a participant in the little 500 at IU, so we reminisced about the movie Breaking Away. I think his name was Cody.

Currently in an internet hub in Lima’s airport after an uneventful and mostly boring flight from Atlanta. As soon as I hang up, I will look for a place to sleep in the airport for a couple of hours before getting on my flight to Cuzco... unless there is a bar nearby.
