旅立ち
タイ航空
2004.2.9、定刻に遅れること30分、16:55に離陸しました。

タイ航空を利用。当初は一番チケットが安いからと言う理由で
選びましたが、、エコノミーにしては座席も広く、Flight attendant
のおねーさんたちも美人で(何回かチェンジしたユニフォームも
民族衣装的で可愛かった)、結構サービスもよく、楽しく8時間45分の
空の旅を楽しむことができました。「タイ航空」、お勧めです。
It took off to 16:55 for Feb.9th.2004 by delay for 30 minutes.
I used Thai Airways International.Although I chose by the reason
said that the ticket is the cheapest than the others at first.
A seat was camfortable(large),though it was economy seat.The
flight attendanta were beautiful, and the uniforms that changed
several times and those were Race clothes were also cute.
Their service was also good and I could enjoy the trip of the sky for
8 hours and 45 minutes happily.I T recommend "hai Airways International".
日本時間の18:00頃、夕食が出ました。さすがタイ航空!
「タイカレー」か「ビーフ」又は「チキン」でした。
辛いものが苦手な私なので無難に「ビーフ」を頼んだら、
これにもカレーソースがかかっていて、辛かった!
でも、おいしかったです。なぜか「茶そば」も付いていました....。
The supper came out at the 18:00 time of Japan Standard Time.
It is just like Thai Airways International!
They were "Thai curry", "beef", or a "chicken." Since
the hot thing was me weak,I asked a "beef" safely,
but curry sauce was applied also to this and it was
hot! but it was delicious,I liked it. "Tea-buckwheat
noodles" was attached without knowing why ....
夜に軽い夜食が出ましたが、すっかり寝込んでしまっていました。
現地時間の朝7:20頃、朝食が出ました。よかった、オムレツで
した。
8:15ごろサンフランシスコが見えました。いよいよ着陸です。入国
カードの記入に一苦労。
Although the light midnight snack came out at night,I had
fallen asleep. Breakfast came out in the morning of local
time at the 7:20 times. I'm glad that it was a omelet.
I could see San Francisco at the 8:15 times. It was landing
finally. I wrote the immigration card, suffering troubles.
ついにロサンゼルス空港に到着。意外と小さい到着ロビーでした。
日本同様、警備が厳重で、immigration では長蛇の列ができてい
ました。
I've arrived at the Los Angeles airport at last.
It was as small an arrival lobby as unexpected. The security was severe
like Japan. There was a long line at the immigration office.
厳重な警備体制
ちなみに、行きの関西空港では「アメリカ行きのツーリスト」は手荷物検査の後、別に呼ばれ、スーツケース
等持ち物はすべて開けられチェックを受けました。

帰りのロサンゼルス空港でも、さらに警備が厳重で、手荷物検査の後は、荷物には封印シールを貼られ、警備
員の手で荷物を各航空会社のカウンターへ運ばれ、検査封印後は旅行客には一切かばんに触れさせませんでし
た。スーツケースに鍵を掛けてもいけないらしく、逆にちょっと盗難が心配でした。

その後のボディチェックも厳しく、私は機内持ち込みの手荷物をすべてひっくり返され、靴まで脱がされまし
た。別の女性は、サンダルなのに脱がされ、さらに上着も全部脱がされていました。男性は容赦なく脱げる範
囲で(ベルト・靴・上着)ほとんどの人が脱がされていました。

よって、本当にすごく時間がかかります。いつもよりさらに時間に余裕を持って空港に行って下さい。
これも安全で快適な空の旅のため、みんなで協力をしましょう。
The severe security
Incidentally, in Kansai Airport, after baggage inspection, "the tourists for the U.S."
were instructedto go to other places, and all properties, such as a suitcase, could be
opened and were checked.

The security was also still severer at the Los Angeles airport. Seals were stuck baggage
on after baggage inspection, and they were carried to the counter of each airline by a
guards.And after that the travelers weren't allowed to touch our baggages. We also
weren't allowed to lock our baggages,therefore I worried that it might be stolen.

The body check was also severe, the guards took out all the contents of my bag and said
that I took off shoes. Another woman was said to take off sandals!
The male was directed so that he might remove as can as possible(a belt, shoes, and coat).

Therefore, it took a lot of time. Please go to the airport with a more margin than usual.
Let's cooperate all together for a trip of a sky that this is also safe and comfortable.
