Big airports are problematic places. That is, they are both troublesome, and it is also questionable whether they are places at all, or just some kind of limbo (remembering what Dante wrote about limbo in his Inferno). Bad organisation, humiliation and suffering. The bland everyday drama. Kind of reminds you of today’s mobile data services, my favourite. Just spent two weeks, literally, trying to get Elisa (our university’s mobile operator) to make my laptop’s mobile data to work before this travel. Boy, did they fail, in multiple ways and with sort of consistency in inability to deliver a working solution. Now, lets see if I can configure this old Nokia 6600 to access my emails, somehow. With all this waiting, at least I have some time.
