Things to do in Denver when you're delayed
"In the last year, however, Skarre's self-confidence had evaporated somewhat, and Harry had begun to think it was not impossible that they would make a decent policeman out of him after all."2) Wander the immense length of Denver International Airport's Terminal B, with its neon, its bi-level concourse, its smoking lounge, its massage chairs, and compare this to Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport, with its fast check-in and its gates with ground-level glass doors giving directly onto the runways. The terminals are narrow and parked smack amid runways and mountains, a small reminder of what aviation must have been like before code-sharing and hubs.
3) Wish that the airport's numerous slick Internet kiosks permitted saving and downloading of pictures, so I could show you some of the giant redwoods amid which I wandered yesterday. I don't go in much for awe, but those trees sure got the job done.
