Thought for the day….” If you cannot be thankful for what you achieve, then be thankful for what you escape”.

There are good airports in the world, and there are bad airports. Singapore (Changi) must rate as the best airport in the world, and changing aircraft there or just waiting is actually a pleasant experience. Well managed, clean and also lots of good facilities for travellers, such as free cinemas, gardens and even a swimming pool. And plenty of comfortable seats. Compare that to the Oslo Gardermoen (OSL) airport. They have taken away most of the seats in the terminal now, so that often the only option (apart from sitting in an expensive restaurant (which may be closed at night/early morning) is to sit on the floor. Their reply to my complaint was that it was due to pressure of space, so their answer is to take seats out. But it will be reviewed again in 2017 (yes, you read correctly, 2017!!). What are travellers supposed to do if they have to wait before they are able to check in? I sometimes wonder about the people managing airports such as Oslo Gardermoen. Not only is the lack of seats bad, but if you arrive off a long flight, then try getting a shower in the airport. Oslo Gardermoen (OSL) airport has facilities more like a 3rd world country, instead of a Scandinavian capital.
Staying in El Salvador again for the photo today, and a photo from the market in the town of Naza. Again, a very expressive face. The photo also makes a good crop as well, have a look at the small photo below and see if you like it better.
