surprisingly, it seems quite a bit more liberal than the us… but then again, i feel the same way when i go to the airport in germany or france. with respect to absurd security measures, the airport here only allows one carryon bag - unlike in the us where we can carry a carry on and a “personal item” - they said if you’re a lady and have a purse, you have to put it in your bag or check it in… ludicrous.
was able to get internet access for $9 for a whole day here at the airport… not too bad for 24 hours of wireless access when you have to wait in the airport for several hours for your flight.
speaking of prices, cost of living must be insane in the uk - basically, 1 pound is like $2 or close enough to $2. so like the starbucks here in the airport costs the same as starbucks in the us, except that its really double the price because of the conversion factor. i guess though that the person who lives here would be making their salary in pounds so its kind of the same as when i go to egypt for example and things are the same price but in egyptian pounds, so i have a the conversion factor as an advantage (poor people who come from places like egypt to the uk!).
anyway… haha so now i can say i’ve updated my blog from 2 continents :) lets see if i can add to that number in the upcoming days…
