Atlanta

When my flight arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta international airport, it was the inauguration day. I waited for two and a half hours for passport control after a long flight from my country. I was totally exhausted when I finally went through passport control. But after that, some lovely airport staff said ‘Welcome to Atlanta!’ to us with bright smiles on the way to exit. I have seen similar scene before, but their smiles were something special and it got rid of my tiredness and made me smile.

アトランタ空港に到着して、大統領就任日だったせいか入国審査で2時間半待ち、すべての手続きを終えて外へと向かう途中、通路沿いに立つアフリカ系のスタッフの人たちが「Welcome to Atlanta ! 」と楽しそうに声をかけてくれたのが印象的でした。

明るく楽しそうに仕事をしていている彼らの表情は、セサミストリートのキャラクターたちに似ていて、長時間フライト+入国審査待ちでへとへとになっていた私も自然と笑顔に。

新しいアパートメントは公園に近く、落ち着いた雰囲気で気に入っています。
