Dancing at San Diego Airport; Cleaning up in the Housekeeping Olympics

If you happen to be traveling to or through San Diego International Airport on Tuesday morning (September 14, 2010) between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm, make your way to the Terminal 2 West baggage claim area.

There, against the backdrop of travelers going about the business of grabbing their bags and greeting their loved ones, you’ll get to see the Malashock Dance Company perform a travel-themed modern dance.

And, if you’re checking into a hotel this week, keep in mind that it’s International Housekeepers Week.  This ‘holiday’ is celebrated each year in the second full week of September and in many cities the week is marked with Housekeeping Olympics competitions that include laundry folding, bed making, toilet bowl bowling, vacuum cleaner racing and other events.

The folks at the Four Season Austin were kind enough to share this photo of their general manager (the guy with the boxing gloves) fighting to keep the Housekeeping Champ title.
