Florida 2011: Day 1: Heading to Florida
Heading to Florida to witness a bit of history-- the very last Space Shuttle launch!
First, lunch at El Cholo Cantina (who knew El Cholo had a location in the airport? I didn't!), which was decent but pricey as hell. Delta evidently has much better restaurants in their terminal 5 than United or Southwest does (terminals 7/8 and 1, respectively). Then off to Atlanta on a somewhat bumpy flight, some Chick-Fil-A for dinner, and a (delayed) second flight to take us to Orlando, plus extra delays for picking up bags and for picking up rental cars-- meant we were almost 2 hours later than planned, with a 2am arrival at the hotel. UGH.
t'was a bit interesting seeing some people from LAX getting on the same flight we did to Orlando, maybe Florida is a popular destination? *grins*
