In front of me sits a huge cookie and a coffee in a paper cup.
First of all I don't normally eat those flying saucer cookies, or even drink out of paper cups, but right now its 11.02 am at home and I left at 6.30 am the previous day. My body clock is preparing for lunch and I need food in my room for a food flight in the middle of the night.
I even keep the coffee by the bed and drink it cold.
Experience tells me 'You will be searching for something to eat at 2 am"
It always happens and it takes 3 days until the body clock is working correctly.
This trip I have more than 3 days before I spend time with students.
OK, so I will fess up. I did have a small drama, after security I went to the airline lounge, dropped my bags at a table and then went to the loo. On my return I found my bright orange camera bag was missing.
The folks around me shared my concern as did security.
I thought maybe I left it in security... for Petes sake it weight 10 lb., how could I forget it.…
I went down to security and there it was...… Oh, sigh, I carry around $10,000 worth of camera equipment. I'm paranoid about it and check it constantly...… Gees, how could I be so silly.
Overall, the trip was just great and I'm so pleased to be here, now I can go to bed in my qantas Jamas.
Each time I travel I have the idea of taking a group photo of all the people wearing their Jamas.... I would love to.... It's so funny, there we are all decked out in our grey with our little slippers and black sox.
Ahhhh, the bed is inviting it 8.33 and I can go to bed.
