I love airports
But oh how I hate going through security. This was my first time going through a body scanner and I can't believe how humiliating it felt. Already the fact that I had to strip off my boots, belt, coat, jackets, watch... as is usual nowadays. Then you have to go in the stupid machine that is more like a capsule, put your feet in a designated place and raise your hands. I felt in a cowboy movie. Oh and after that, the security staff still physically search you (read touch you) all over. I wonder if all of these rules are actually helping anything, it is just annoying.
The good part is now I am home, jet lagged, feeling like a zombie, and unable to make some sense, but oh so happy to be with my family and friends, and to see the sun and feel the warmth. As we left, it had started to snow and we are missing it. But I won't complain about it, oh no.
