Day one abroad started with a ten hour flight from Miami, Florida to Istanbul, Turkey. I had a 15 hour layover which at first seemed daunting but I kept a positive disposition and knew I would make the best of it. The airport security pounced on anyone who’s mask dropped beneath their nose, it was unpleasant. As luck would have it my host invited me to a private lounge that had free food, booze, shower and all the amenities of luxury. The time passed easily and day two will begin shortly with a flight to my destination, Kiev, Ukraine. The moral, positive thinking manifests positive action.
