Arrived in London on time and a leisurely 1 hour 30 minutes to wait for the connection. The flight took off on time, the back of the plane was fairly empty so I got three seats to myself, enough room for the stretch out and a sleep. I slept about half the time. Unfortunately, I missed Greenland but was wakened to take in Hudson Bay and most of Canada. Blanks of could hide most of the mountains in the West but as we dip below the cloud to land in San Francisco, white snow capped mountains of North California were in view. Below, I could see Silicon Valley, with highway 101 and 237 lining each side. And then the familiar block pattern of roads. I have arrived.
