Leaving on a Jet Plane

21 07 2017

Another trip earlier today out of Narita.  Am now in Shanghai, China, attending a festival on business.

Our ride to the hotel.

Checked in.

Beautiful view!





Breakfasting in El Segundo and Onward to San Francisco

14 07 2017

It was great that during my recent business trip to the US, the day I was travelling from Los Angeles to San Francisco fell on a Sunday which allowed me to get together with a couple of high school friends living in the LA area to get some brunch together.  One of them even lives near LAX and her choice of venue in downtown El Segundo was perfect for me.

I was driven to LAX by one of my friends.  Took a Delta flight to SFO.

Arriving in San Francisco, taking the airtrain.

BART!





A Night Out in Little Tokyo and Breakfast After

2 07 2017

The first night in LA was a massive welcome dinner for our huge travel party. Our mysterious-looking ride to the restaurant.

In Little Tokyo for an izakaya party.

And the first morning was another sunny day.  Downstairs from the hotel where outside seating seems to be the norm for the eateries in the complex, I had a nice not-too-heavy breakfast.

 





Leaving on a Jet Plane and Arriving and Lunching in Los Angeles

30 06 2017

So I took off on another trip on Thursday, June 29 but before doing so, stopped by a local voting post to cast an absentee ballot for the upcoming election for the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly.

This trip is an unusual one for me in that I am with a group of people including colleagues and people from other companies to go to a convention being held in LA this weekend.

Zipped to LA.  Our plane landed much earlier than scheduled and had to keep taxiing round and round the same route more than three times until our gate was ready.

Finally in and out of the terminal at LAX.

Our rooms were not ready so off to the Grand Central Market behind our hotel for some lunch.

Ordering lunch

Took a table near this nice bar (but didn’t buy from it) and waited for our lunch with a nice cup of cold craft beer.

Lunch is served.  Had a really good lamb burger.

Walk back to the hotel.

Checked in.

My view.





Random Malta

25 06 2017

It’s a wrap for my recent trip to the Republic of Malta with very random photos of little things I saw and did.

Going away on business this morning.

Off to Marseille, France for the weekend.





Waiting for the Gozo-Malta Ferry with a Cold One

29 05 2017

The day I went out to the island of Gozo in Malta at the beginning of May was a very sunny and warm day (like most days in Malta).  By the time I was ready to take the ferry back, I was in dire need of something cold to drink.

My advance research paid off and I duly spotted the Gleneagles Bar right on the harbor.
