A burst of cool, crisp air rushes from the tunnel as a train plows through, it is a nice change from the musky, hot air in the tube station. As you’re pushed, shoved and rushed onto the train, like a school of sardines in a tin can. I don’t mind though… I feel complete with […]

“Where have I seen him before?” I thought to myself as I made my way down the aisle of the small airplane resting on the tarmac of the small Long Beach airport. “Sorry, so sorry” I mumbled out loud with each whack my large backpack made with each person’s face and arms as I fumbled […]

Out With The Old And In With The New..
