Final Day of International Pow Wow 2011

SFO airport co-sponsored last night’s International Pow Wow 2011 travel market-place evening gala at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.  Honestly, the museums were far too crowded and loud for my pleasure, but I truly enjoyed the entertainment and Planetarium show.

The Planetarium is an incredible visual journey to the molecular level and then to vast space. The 15-year old albino alligator is another unique creature to see.

No time to write a real blog story at the moment.

I’ll share a couple of photos from last night that are frequent flyer related.

SFO at California Academy of Sciences International Pow Wow gala May 24, 2011

San Francisco Airport launched most of the journeys that earned about 4 million frequent flyer miles for me over the past decade. I don’t play the credit card churn game. My miles were almost all earned from flying on planes.

SFO ground crew

My impression from watching hundreds of ground crew personnel guiding aircraft to the SFO gates over the years is these workers generally look like ex-football players. This must be the new wave of SFO ground staff.
