When I first saw that a man posted a video of himself singing and dancing in an empty airport, I couldn't believe my poor luck because I had a thought to do the same thing when I had an airport all to myself in Cairns, Australia last October. The international terminal at Cairns was completely empty....I was lucky if I even saw a janitor once an hour, and I was there for several hours! I spent a bit of time walking around, taking pictures of the emptiness--fighting the feeling that the world had been raptured and left me behind. There were only a handful of people on my flight, so when I walked down the terminal corridor to my gate, I was totally alone as the others stayed behind to shop. When I arrived at my gate, the sign displaying my flight was--of all times--at 00:00 for boarding (midnight in military time). With the isolation, the empty halls and corridors, and the funky boarding time, I was sure I was re-living a scene from Stephen King's "The Langoliers"--I seemed to be living in some parallel-universe airport. In the hours I was there by myself, I watched some movies, walked around, but most of all tried to figure out how I could film myself singing and dancing to a song with all that space at my disposal--but alas, I didn't end up making it, and I've now missed out on 15 minutes of YouTube fame. But here are the pictures I took of the freaky, Twilight Zone airport experience nonetheless.
