spa week, day 2: three nights in scottsdale

It’s Women’s History Month, this in like a lion, out like a lamb month of ours. That got me thinking about airports, and how many have been named after women. Here’s what some cursory clicking revealed:

- Indira Ghandi International Airport | Delhi
- Rinas Mother Teresa Airport | Tirana, Albania
- Reina Sofía Airport | Tenerife (For Queen Sofia of Spain. This is not site of the world’s deadliest plane crash, that was at the other airport. In 1977, two planes crashed on the runway killing 583.)
- Princess Juliana International Airport | Saint Maarten (For Juliana of the Netherlands)
- Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport | Thermal, CA (Jacqueline Cochran was an amazing aviatrix, as well as creator of a line of makeup, endorsed by Marilyn Monroe, called Wings. For more, read HERE.)

I suppose it could be worse. My remaining favorite airports are named after cultural and intellectual heroes, not warmongers or politicians on the other side of the aisle. The airport in Rimini is named after Federico Fellini. In Pisa, Galileo. In Warsaw, Chopin. In Lyon, Saint-Exupéry. In Rio, Antônio Carlos Jobim.

For Day Two of Spa Week, how about a shot at three nights at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale, plus dinner and spa treatments. I’ve been, for a dinner event, not overnight. What a terrific looking spa. And the lobby scene is happening, with great music and people watching.
