Back in the US did a tour of the Boeing factory where they build the 747, 777, 767 and 787. Don't think it will impact in anyway on my fear of flying. Probably made it worse. No cameras permitted in the factory.
Travelled down to Seattle from Vancouver. 3 hr delay at Border as this time needed to apply for entry as no longer on World Bank visa. Border guy not impressed when i told him i did not know where i was staying each night and what date i was leaving on. Was tempted to tell him to log on to the blog site and see what a road trip looks like but had to bite my lip as fate of road trip was entirely in his hands. But he knew there was no way he could refuse and justify to his boss when i had previously been vetted by state department and just spent 2 years living there. Thanks for the three months holiday visa sir! Yessir!
