Good evening from Washington, DC. I’m still here and getting back to LA may be just as much an adventure as getting to LA. Note to self: it is difficult to get home when flights are full. Book early next time.
My spur of the moment trip to DC upended what would have been a quiet week. I hope to get home as soon as possible and not step on a plane until my next big trip in February.
The Africa trip report will continue tomorrow, with a photo report of my safari in Kruger National Park. The more interesting post, in my opinion, will be the installment after, a journey through Swaziland.
I received a fair amount of criticism this week for the fact that my ongoing Africa trip report is two years old. Believe me, I understand that older reviews are of less value than current ones. Nevertheless, as my review update of the Park Hyatt Hamburg demonstrated, not much changes. When it does, I highlight it. The same is true of the topics touched on in this report.
If nothing else, this is an entertaining read about my journey from Los Angeles to Washington, DC for the 58th Presidential Inauguration Ceremony.
A JetBlue Vacations deal resulted in a free trip to Vegas for many, myself included. I posted a follow-up article on whether JetBlue was legally bound to honor the deal.
The final United Boeing 747-400 flight will be from Seoul Incheon to San Francisco on October 29, 2017.
