Summer brings heat, humidity, thunderstorms, and delays. I hate everyone within two feet of me, under those circumstances, even more so, in a crowded airport with pesky passengers.

Create your own “dome” with a– good junk book preferably paperback so you can toss it after the flight. b– your own bottles of water even at crazy prices paid in airports c– some nibbles that are half healthful half naughty (Trader Joe’s trail mixes are full of good and bad ingredients) d- clothes with easy slip-on slip-off shoes and minimum zippers (give in to elastic waistbands here), e- an attitude that allows those in more discomfort to go ahead of you.

Just don’t come near me.  Join me in Argentina Aug. 8-20 2013. One room left
