Notes on America #1

13 May 2012
  • I am watching these two guys pawn ridiculously lousy jewellery for ridiculous prices, as mocked on South Park..."note how this eagle is very three dimensional off this piece of onyx"...
  • The Microsoft campus is mindblowingly big; you can stand in the middle and everything the light touches is Microsoft land - aerial Bing/Google maps don't really convey the scale of the operation.
  • Wholemeal bread here tastes like sugar, and these "organic" toaster pastries I found are essentially also just sugar.
  • Seattle is a really beautiful place to fly in to, with Mount Rainier majestically presiding over lots of greenery and lakes.
  • LAX, on the other hand, is a lousy place to be.
