Departing "The Beloved Land of the Sun"
Sun fading fast... stars are out... Was supposed to depart much sooner but a nice gal ran out from the terminal with a plate of roast beef and mash-ed taters. Maybe I can't find the airport and have to fly back.

Although I love flying at night... mountains, darkness and landings aren't the greatest combination. But once again I find some comfort... some gentle soul broadcasting "Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground" by Blind Willie Johnson (picked up on the ADF eqpt.) wish they play it another time or two before I start my descent.
