April 30th: Bags packed/Sea-Tac

After a longer drive and shorter sleep than I was expecting, I was finally off! After three months of staring at the itinerary tacked to my bedroom wall, I was finally in the airplane. Apparently Icelandair plays romantic saga-ish tunes gently through the cabin as passengers board and disembark. Maybe this is to calm fliers and distract us from the fact that a volacano is erupting at our destination and...Greenland is melting. I actually had this thought as we were flying over. "It looks meltier than the last time I saw it..." And then the June issue of National Geographic arrives yesterday and what's the topic? "Changing Greeland: Melt Zone." See for yourself:
