I finally have some time to start the 'photojournal' for the Dec 08 US Trip...
And we begin at the airport:
Our flight was SQ 12, and we had a very short stop-over in Tokyo. We flew into Tokyo just in time for sunset, where we were able to see the silhouette of Mt. Fuji in the distance:
(Mt. Fuji is the one on the right)
Transiting in Tokyo:
From Tokyo, it was another 10+ Hrs before we arrived in Los Angeles (LAX). We flew in from the Pacific, over some mountains:
(I presume that they're part of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, but I'm not certain)
We arrived almost an hour early, but the airport could not find a place for our plane, so we had to wait for nearly 30 minutes on the plane before we could disembark...
But we finally did :)
LAX Control Tower:
Will continue in next post...
