Hope everyone has a good weekend. Say “hello” to a new week!

Topic for today : Airports

What is the first thing you see once you step out of the plane? Yes, you are in the airport – the first point of entry to a foreign country. As impression goes – it can be a “wow” experience, so-so feeling or terrifying appall. Given a choice, you will either return here or with all due harsh leave immediately!
