Just spent the 20 minutes before boarding my plane joint juggling with a very nice guy. I had bought three juggling balls from a mall store for my long layover. He saw me trying to learn, patiently showed me how to juggle the balls between two people, and showed me about a million other tricks too. This is why I love to travel.

“May the Lord bless you and keep you,” he said with true sincerity, when they called his flight. “And you as well,” I said, and meant it.
