Back in Ottawa after a whirlwind week in Mountain View. Summary of the return trip: Chicago airport is as insane on Saturdays as Fridays, so that’s right out now. All future trips will avoid ORD if possible. Luggage: lost (at ORD, natch), but it managed to catch a later flight and get a cab home within 24hrs. McDonald’s: as foul as I remember it being, particularly when you’re trying to juggle a full Quarter Pounder combo while hauling carry-on and trying to find a seat somewhere near the correct gate. WiFi: always too expensive. 4 hour layover: not bad considering that the Ottawa flight that was supposed to leave 3 hours before mine ended up leaving at basically the same time. Could have been worse. Random rumour has it that there will (someday) be a direct Ottawa > San Jose flight. That would seriously, seriously rule, but I’m not holding my breath.
