Where I stayed
In the Air on some Planes

Flag of Fiji  , Viti Levu,
Thursday, September 6, 2012

My flight from LAX to Sydney is with Air Pacific, the airplane that I am on does not have power outlets to connect all my precious electronics. That is what you get for a $590 one way ticket to Sydney.

I was however able to catch up on some Breaking Bad though. The inflight entertainment is also lackluster. This makes me pine for the Korean Air flights I had back in 2010. Korean Air had a 7 inch touch screen and what seemed to be an almost unlimited selection of movies music and games on demand. Heck you could even play multiplayer games agains other passengers. I remember this because I was the champ of the left side of the plane, only losing to the champ from the middle of the plane (the plane was 80 percent asians).The airline I am on, Pacific Air has 13 channels of video. Channels which are proudly presented in what I think is a VHS player streaming these movies. Korean Air also gave me 4 meals during the flight, Air Pacific gave 1.

Waiting at the Fiji airport as a transient I noticed that FIJI water was every where (this makes sense). I had to take buy a bottle and take a picture with one, using the mountain view from the airport view as a backdrop. I didn't have any Fiji currency and they would accept US currency but would only give me Fiji currency in return. Since I'm such a baller ionly had one $1 bill and several $100 bills. No dice, sorry Kha! The bottle was only $2, even with the airports inflated prices.

I just now realized that I definitely should of stopped for a few days in Fiji. It would of been the correct way to use my layover wisely. Hopefully I will be able to make it back and visit.

I just realized that at some point during my flight I was thrown into the future.
