Our pilgrimage is now officially underway. We’re at Sky Harbor in Phoenix, waiting for our flight to Mexico City. We’ve passed through the TSA checkpoint, and to give credit where due, everyone working there was in relatively good spirits this morning.
We took advantage of a relatively inexpensive upgrade, so now we’re enjoying our wait with a light breakfast in the Admirals Club lounge where we’re not subjected to CNN. The flight boards in about an hour.
