People in the Airport -- Chicago O'Hare

It was fun stoping over for an hour the yesterday in Chicago. I was able to watch a Lufthansa 747 board for departure to Frankfurt while waiting for my own flight. I also spent some time watching ramp operations and the apparent chaos that somehow seems orchestrated to ensure bad things do not happen.


People were everywhere, I had forgotten how many people a 747 carries.

Children clinging to parents. People from foreign lands. A cross section of humanity.

One little boy was very brave, walking away from his parents for a few minutes. But there was no panic. He was a cute two years old and not afraid of anything. The onlookers were more concerned about his welfare. But there was nothing to worry about as his mother was always within sight of the adventurous lad.

I enjoy passing through Chicago. It is alive and there is always something happening.
