Salt lake area
Having a bit of a smoke, under there somewhere
Emergency run to Burger King this morning as last night I had finally managed to eat the last of my traveling food supply.
That done and all packed off to the airport I went.
A day I have been dreading, at least for the last 2 weeks anyway.
I had to give the Murano back, it was just soooo good, I wanted to keep it.
I used the self checkin at the terminal for the first time, very easy, made my way through the usual security checks.
And then had some time to catch up on some reading.
From the plane I got a good look at some of the areas that I had traveled through on previous days, at least what I could see of it through the smoke.
In a couple of places it could be clearly seen where the fires are from the smoke rising from the forests.
Upon arriving at San Francisco I mat my sister and we went on a hunt for a hotel for the next 3 nights that wewould be in town.
Yhe second hotel had rooms avaliable but they were a bit expensive, so a bit of bribery got it down by $20 a night, still a bit high (just) so I said that we would try somewhere else and went to leave.
Majically the price came down again to an acceptable amount.
We went got some food, had a look at some shops and did some looking into what we were going to do over the next couple of days.
Not much else was done as we were both tired.
