Greetings from sunny Los Angeles. I’m in a holding pattern this week. I thought I was going to have to leave for Europe tomorrow, but that trip has been postponed.
I’m both relieved and disappointed. I never like leaving my family but there’s a heatwave coming to Los Angeles that I wanted to escape. In all seriousness, I’m always happy to stay in town though it looks like I’ll be heading to Las Vegas later in the week…where the high topped 110ºF today. So much for heat avoidance…
Stay tuned for a pair of Emirates first class reviews in the week ahead. Have a great week ahead!
