Arrival!

I've arrived safely in Dulles, Virginia. My flight actually landed on time, which was somewhat surprising considering what I've heard of air travel over this summer. The flight was nice, I was in Economy Plus so I had a bit more space than the cattle at the back. Luckily, the middle seat was empty in my row so the arm rests went up! The lady at the window was a very nice woman who travels extensively for work. We chatted a bit on and off, but mostly I watched Night at the Museum on my iPod then switched to Firefly DVD's on the laptop. I have to say, I'm glad I had those distractions. I didn't really feel like reading (I'd rather read lying down or in a more relaxing position than any you can be in on an airplane). If I hadn't brought my own, I would have been stuck watching "Surf's Up". While I'm sure it's a cute little animated penguin flick, sorry, not in the mood. Firefly much better.

We arrived at the terminal and upon leaving the plane we were greeted with 95 degrees and lots of humidity. At 5pm. Wonderful. Weather to umm...be glad I live in SoCal for. I followed the signs towards my intended destination and came across a neat old plane that is the American Airlines flagship. I took a few pictures on my camera phone (my other was packed and NOT coming out without removing everything). I hope they turn out. If not, maybe I'll take a few more on my way out.

Since United is at a satellite terminal, I had to take this shuttle thing. They look like two story subway cars with fins on top for aerodynamics (or something). I'll take some pictures on my way out. They're very odd. Hopped the shuttle for the hotel (just missed him the first time, but I called and he turned around) and now I'm here. Checked in, unpacked, hooked up to the wireless network and thinking about what I'm going to do tonight.

It's 6:30pm. If I went into the city tonight I'd only have two hours before I'd have to be back on the bus. I think I'll wait for tomorrow. The training ends at 4pm the rest of the week, so I think I could get there Monday or Tuesday night as well. We'll see. I think it's too late tonight to do anything. TV and delivery it is! Maybe I'll go for a walk. There's some woodsy areas around the hotel that look pretty.
