crazy SF Trip

Posted on Wednesday 21 February 2007

Just got back from SF. Boy, this was the craziest traveling I experienced ever. I mean, seriously…
ok… here is how it went…We were hit by a nasty snow storm in the east coast on Wednesday night when I was supposed to fly out of JFK. After my flight got canceled as expected, the new flight I booked was the early one off La Guadia at 6:00 am next morning. In order to catch the early flight, I left my apt around 3 am. (super shuttle called me at 2am to cancel on me so I had to find a yellow cab in the middle of street at 3!)
My flight got a slight delay although the weather seemed fine… it missed its connecting flight at Cleveland. oh great.. I will have to kill a few hours at the airport… no, no, they told me it’s all booked up til Saturday!
I put myself on the standby list on the following flights but of course everyone’s thinking the same I kept missing those flights.
Finally I got a whole new ticket to fly to Denver hoping I find a flight to SF that night. I got to my friend’s apt around mid night. It was just about 24 hours door to door. not to mention I passed out that night!

as you expected, did some drawings while waiting… I love drawing at the airport. Travelers are usually interesting.

lots of funny ones too…

there’s always an interesting encounter in these situations. That’s what’s fascinating about traveling isn’t it?

    woah, Dice…i’m sorry that things were that crazy! i hate waiting at the airport – once i brought a sketchbook that i didnt know was full, and i went nuts! well, as long as you are safe and sound. dig the sketches especially the guy with the camera, like an unpside down turnip!

    Wow, it seems like you have been victim of the Murphy’s law. The perfect hell in this situation is not having a sketchbook at all. Very funny sketches !
    I hope you had fun with friends in SF man !

    love the sketches. Stuff you have in your painting section is absolutely fantastic!
    too bad you had tough time coming to CA. But you sure made the most out of it!

    James— remember I was complaining about the long flight to Tokyo? well, this was way worse! but at least I can laugh at it!

    Gerald–yes, I’m glad I had my sketch book as well as my laptop. I was able to work on my OOP at the airport too.

    Ramirez–thank you. hope you come again

    Piper–thank you so much. Yeah, we can always make fun of our difficult situations right?

    Asato—thank you.
