I just finished joining Medium moments ago. Yours is the first article I read, so I loved your reference to making history and now you’re part of my history here. You have an engaging writing style; for these moments of reading I got to feel like I was right there. That video .. HA bizarre .. makes me wonder what airline you’re on.
I’m thinking the guy next to you is Indian so maybe that’s curry you’re smelling. Funny how delicious stuff (garlic etc) isn’t so great 2nd hand.
Enjoy the rest of your trip and keep up the great writing!
