1. I arrived intact and in the right place! (Always feels like an accomplishment when traveling alone)
2. The cities look like burning embers from the airplane window at night
3. The San Francisco airport had a exhibit of retro space-themed stuff from the 1960s. There were tin toys and records and model plastic guns.
4. My lei was made of purple orchids and yellow flowers and made the car smell nice for days.
5. There are HEDGES of bougainvillea along the path from the airport.
