Fortunately and usually there is not much to report on these days of travel.
We had to be out of our room by noon. By that time I had completed the 15 minute section of the What I Saw Last Winter talk for 2010 presentations. A quick thirty minutes in the Internet room, checking last minute messages and making sure that Angie had the right details for picking me up at the airport. She beat me to it with a message reminding me of the detail.
Lunch – Pizza Havana (for me) and Spaghetti with prawns for Cliff (can’t remember what Mike had) made the time pass by. Good to see that Cliff has got over his fear of prawns after a possible food poisoning incident many years ago.
15:30 and time to get a taxi to take us to the airport where we were supposed to take off at 19:10. Add at least an hour to that, without any explanation announcement. If there had been one, the P.A. system was still the type that they used to have at UK railway stations in the sixties. Inaudible.
Eventually – nearly eight hours in flight – boring!
