I have three questions
1/ why do people on the plane keep their blinds drawn down for the whole of the journey - even when the sun is shining and there are clear views of the landscape below ?
2/ why do people not even raise their blinds when they are coming in to land at San Francisco airport - how can they bear to miss the views of the Bay? the Golden Gate Bridge? The wonderful everything that is here?
3/ the sweet American wing of the family have a box of genuine Twinings Earl Grey tea bags in their kitchen for my delectation, and this is wonderful. But will the six Yorkshire tea bags that I brought with me (for the first bracing mug of the day) last me until I fly home?
