Today is the day I go home alone. And as I have driven him to school and college all these years, this is a long “drive” to college and a long “drive” home.
I spent the morning cleaning up the AirBnB place as much as I could. I am going to miss this place.
Like all AirBnBs, I am supposed to check out at 11am, but my flight is at 5:25pm and I don’t have anywhere to go. But the host was gracious enough to let me hang around the house till my transport come to take me to the airport. God bless him!
I got to the Monterey Regional Airport very early, too early in fact. And so I just checked in and spent time reading.
When the plane lifted off the runway at Monterey, it was kind of momentous for me—it’s like a final goodbye.
The flight from Monterey to Los Angeles takes about an hour and upon arrival, this is all I see of the city, all lighted up and the roads are mostly congested with cars. It is quite a sight.
And after this, it’s 17+ hours of flight from Los Angeles to Singapore.
