A December 2000 trip
to Rarotonga by reynosora403
Quote: The Rarotonga airport is like no other I've ever seen: when I arrived a bit early for my flight, I found no guards, no airline employees, and no other passengers apparently waiting.
My American mind insisted that there must have been other people around somewhere, working in unseen back rooms or lurking behind the greenery along the thin chain-link fence providing the only security around the runway. But my senses insisted otherwise: from all appearances, I had the place to myself.
There are a few bits of shade provided by little triangular huts and a covered sidewalk. So I plunked down my bags, sat facing the volcanic mountains on the other side of the silent runway, and tried to imagine what LAX could possibly look like.
