Being a nomad again

Andreas in the airport lounge

Here I am, with my gal Cleo, in the airport lounge. I am reclining on a fake chaise longue, underneath a palm-ish plant, gazing at … a bunch of Qantas and Cathay and BA planes being loaded. My flight is delayed and I’ve suddenly got too much time–not usually a problem I encounter in my life.

So, once again, I contemplate the nomadism of modern life. I have my parents (on another continent) on Skype Video in front of me. I am emailing the people at my destination that I’m delayed. I am working on my presentation, blogging, checking in with my editor about my piece in the upcoming issue ….

Is there anything I am not doing? Oh, right. Thinking.

  1. Your timing is perfect. I’m going off the grid for nine days starting Friday. I’ll practice my cursive until then and start commenting the day I return. Why is ‘Cleopatra’ printed backwards in your photo? I know airports can be bizarre, but are you sure you’re in the right dimension?

  2. Nine days offline? I am personally offended that you could sustain yourself that long without the Hannibal Blog.
    Cleo being backwards: That’s bizarre. I took the picture with my Mac’s camera. I must investigate….
    Have a good holiday.
