DEN vs JED

Kansas is in Colorado and it feels like Saudi Arabia

3PM in DEN, waiting for flight to SLC and then HLN. A little strange to be surround by English—on the TV, the woman talking at the bar, the bartender, the signs. It makes things feel a little more crowded; Spanish, when it didn’t directly apply to me—someone talking to me, the name of a bus, something I purposefully attempted to understand, slipped around me more easily. I think this is temporary. I had seen the big white tents of DEN on my way to Costa Rica in early February; spending a little time under them makes me feel like I’m on a Hajj. I think I read and saw pictures of a new terminal in Jeddah that I am reminded of.

I am glad to be here and getting on my way to Montana and The Long Walk.
