An Airport Oasis

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

If you find yourself in Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, don't be alarmed by greenery in the terminals and digital butterfly projections -- no, friend, that wasn't a special brownie. 

The airport's new park allows travelers to hang out beneath (real) trees and ivy plants, and escape the sound of crying babies on an outdoor patio. Airport solace, indeed.
