Dulles, Virginia; Fairfax, Virginia; Washington, DC; Dallas, Texas; Toronto, Ontario.
Tarmac baggage pickup from gateside checkin at Washington Dulles airport. How quaint. Followed by long walk through pier, escalator up and down, train to terminal, walk to last baggage carousel and then outside to rental car pickup. IAD makes JFK and O’Hare seem intimate (Dulles, Virginia, Wednesday) 20100816 1730
Banks of ventilation hoods over BBQ grills signal a serious community of Korean foodies. I opted to have my galbi cooked in the kitchen. MeeGa resto (Fairfax, VA, Wednesday) 20100816 1930
Rockers with a view east onto the Potomac River, beyond the runways. From ‘historic’ terminal A of Reagan National Airport (Washington, DC, Friday) 20100820 1615
Urban rail in downtown Dallas. It occurred to me that I have been to the area frequently, but never really down in the city core, and always in a car. Times change, and energy costs will continue to rise, so this is part of the future (Dallas, Texas, Friday) 20100827 0845
Shoegazing music from Aphasia band from Taiwan. Sunday night at obscure Duffy’s Tavern means small audience compared to Saturday night at Harbourfront or Monday night at Lee’s Palace. Great sound and performance seemed to lower my blood pressure. http://myspace.com/aphasiatw (Toronto, Sunday) 20100829 2130
