Slogging through endless airports, hoping for a nice lounge, or at least a seat near a power outlet.
Occasionally, delightful surprises are discovered. For example, the sign I saw at Cagliari airport (Sardinia) over the baggage conveyor belt:
ATTENZIONE AL SEGNALE ACUSTICO LUMINOSO DI PREAVOISO MOVIMENTO MASTRO.
PAY ATTENTION TO THE ACOUSTIC AND LUMINOUS SIGNAL FOREWARNING TAPE MOVEMENT.
If you haven’t read it, Nigerian Nightmare is a fantastic airport story. See my other airport observations.
