Huntsville, Alabama

Huntsville is the fourth-largest city in Alabama in the heart of Tennessee Valley. Raymond Jones whose father Carl purchased the 2,500-acre farm in 1938. One side of Carl T Jones Drive SE is the farm with cows and across the street, is the modern mall and residential low rise building.


There isn’t a direct flight from NY to Huntsville. Thanks lord it’s a pleasant ride, like a day on the beach. AA stops at Chicago‘s ORD. The second leg of the flight is small, served by one flight attendant – his belly is big so is his niceness.

It’s in the region of the bible belt (the area encompasses southeast to nearly middle of the country. The shape is more like a corner or quarter of the country … rather than a thin belt), gigantic churches are everywhere and imposing. Police officers are hired to direct traffic on weekends.

We’ve lunch at Ding How II on Sunday and 88 Buffet on Monday, then visited NASA’ Space & Rocket Center. Huntsville has three awesome camps. Space camp is one.

Charlotte CLT and HSV are definitely nicer than La Guardia LGA.

Huntsville airport is pretty modern. The main lobby has a piano. It has direct flight to DC. One of the army branch was moving to Huntsville years ago but the move wasn’t too successful due to not many people wanted to relocate.

An afternoon by the beach

Although LGA is unbelievably shabby but once airborne, the sunshine made me feel a day on the beach. In December no less. This isn’t the first time I sit by the window.

LaGuardia Airport is shockingly third world airport.


Unbelievable … but it’s true. The NTC is getting a roof.

I’ve been to Chicago O’Hare International Airport many times. It looks decent and in shape, especially after LGA.
