This puts Posh Spice Heathrow paparazzi shots to SHAME.
I’ve been to a lot of airports and seen a lot of strange displays, but this one in Memphis’ airport is right up there. It’s a series of wood planks showcased on a wall with a small label describing each type. The banner of the display says “Lumbermen’s club of Memphis.” After this emotional, moving display I’m motivated to join. Who’s with me?
Is the universe telling me something?
Its $760 to fly home for Thanksgiving. It would be $711 to fly to Istanbul.
Hmm…what should I do here?
That decision is entirely yours, my dear, but you’ve made travel addicts everywhere proud as can be for even posing the question.
Feb 2010 - Manila, Philippines
The slums - I took this on my commute to The Fort in Manila, this is a far cry from the state of the art hospital, swanky condos, and hustle and bustle of clubs and shopping areas in the Fort. Very sad to see, and it really is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from each other.
