The down hill run is going very, very well. At least the first leg.
Was up at 230am, on the road at 330. At the airport at 530. Checked right in and had a head massage in the departure lounge. The flight was fine. Watched a couple of movies. Dozed a bit. Ate a bit.
Now in Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi is a strange/ interesting place. The Capitol of the United Arab emirates, it is very wealthy. And very poor. A proper shiekdom, the women wear the burka and the men wear flowing robes. It do not look the place where you want to break the laws… there are armed personnel everywhere.
So I had a shower and a shave. Pumping a load of juice and coffee. I’ll stay as awake as possible for this trip as I arrive in Brisbane at 9pm or so. I’d prefer not to be wide awake then.
But that is after the 7 hours to Singapore, then the 8 hours to Sydney, then the 2 hours to Brisbane. So all to be fulfilled in the fulness of time.
Life is good.
