Just a quick stop here to change planes, so this water is about the extent of what I can see. The airport is rather crazy at the moment. Tons of people and gates hidden in corners of two levels. Outside, it looks very hazy, and I can feel the warm and the air conditioning inside.
Etihad — nice ride. Cell phones work on gsm in the air, though mine was dead, and they let you watch one of two cameras, one pointed forward for takeoff and landing and one pointed down for cruising (if it’s clear enough to see anything below).
Sunrise this morning was taken over the Persia Gulf with Iran in the distance. I’d scratch that off my list, but I didn’t anticipate I’d ever be here so it wasn’t on the list.
