We made it. Of course we did. Think of all the hundreds of thousands, millions of people traveling everyday throughout the world. Most make it to their destinations with hardly a hiccup. It’s astonishing the level of detail and coordination that goes into moving humans all over the globe.

We had about four an a half hours to fritter away in Houston before our 10:20 flight. It’s a large airport so we walked it a bit and scoped out the best place to have a beer. Which oddly enough, wasn’t the Beer Garden as it had just four selections from which to choose. We also wanted a location away from the competing fried and bbq smells of the food court. We found it in a sweet freestanding spot called The Beer Hive. The bartender wasn’t too busy and so was chatty and helpful with beer selections, pouring generously of the tastes. He was also more than generous with the latest in the drama of his life story with a bi-polar wife.

I wonder just how much of the narrative is true. Maybe he’s a guy that likes a good story. Maybe he changes it with each telling to new customers. Maybe he has a hell of a time creating scenarios that he plans to use in future pitches for scripts.

The flight was uneventful. The seats did have movies on demand on the seat back. I watched three: BlackkKlansman, Crazy Rich Asians, and Concerto of the Bully, which I find has won awards in Hong Kong. It has an intriguing premise, characters with personality and heart, and a tender story line. I recommend it. With all that, a few meals, some wine and a few naps, our arrival time arrived pretty quickly.

I did snag a swag bag once again from first class. Here is a photo.

We got settled in the Air BNB place. It’s okay. Not as nice as some, nicer than some. We are in the San Telmo neighborhood which is purported to be one of the more charming areas of BA. I’d heard that BA is the Paris of South America.I’m not seeing it yet. Nor feeling it. So far, it feels more like Mexico. I believe I need a good night of sleep and a fresh perspective. And more walking around.

Here is a photo that reminded me of Portugal.

That’s all the photos I took today. Tomorrow I’ll have re-freshed eyes and being.
