I just returned from a trip to Oklahoma City. Not one of my favorite places, but when it’s the headquarters of our largest customer, then you have to do what you have to do – besides the people are nice there.
I often wonder what it would be like to live in a place like Oklahoma City – I am sure there are things of interest there but other than the art museum and the memorial to the OKC Bombing I haven’t found them. So my evening’s entertainment was to go to Border’s Books and browse the shelves. I did find a book on the places you should avoid when traveling this world (titled - Don’t Go There). I was intrigued to see if there were any reasons I shouldn't visit Oklahoma City - and yes there were two. One because it is one of the most likely cities to be hit by a tornado, and two because it is a place where the inhabitants have an unhealthy diet (apparently it always features high on the list places where fast food is the staple of the diet). Well we didn't have a tornado, but I did eat at Quizno's.
So anyway after a reasonably successful trip, I escaped back to California. I got to fly first class this time, and, I must admit, I much prefer that mode of transportation. They still feed you, and the wine and drinks just keep flowing the entire time. It’s not that we at Infostat travel first class for business, it’s just that upgrading is the best thing to do with air miles these days – I never seem to be able to cash them in for a free trip, but I have been lucky with using them for upgrades to first class.
Here's a picture of Denver airport - which I always think looks interesting with all those tent like stuctures, and in the late afternoon sun the other day it looked particularly beautiful.
