It’s difficult for me to grasp the magnitude of global travel. You arrive at the airport and suddenly you’re in a new little world. One where no one knows anyone and everyone is going to and coming from somewhere else. Each person contributes a little to the world in an almost inaudible way, yet each flight arrives in a place completely different than that of where it departed. It’s hard for me to imagine that as I sit here at LAX, people stroll by on there way to a new gate fresh off the plane from somewhere I can hardly imagine to do something that I will probably not even know happened yet is essential to the overall productivity of the world. Then, think of all the people scurrying about at LAX and realize that it is only one of 1000’s of airports around the world.
