Welcome to San Francisco

Welcome to San Francisco.  Of all airports to fly into I find SFO one of the most welcoming and pleasant to arrive in.  Perhaps it’s just the relief of stepping off an 11-hour flight… Maybe it’s the simplicity of the airport compared with the mini-metropolis that is LHR… Or that it is a far cry from every other US destination I’ve ever flown into, most of which seem to work on the assumption that you are a criminal and they just need to drag the confession out of you:

“Yes, I’m a Cuban-Iranian terrorist here to destroy global capitalism and everything you stand for”.

Instead I’m greeted with a polite smile and “Welcome to San Francisco Sir”… with those words my life in the US of A is about to begin…
