It all started on Saturday afternoon when I boarded a nice pleasant flight from Melbourne to Sydney.
From there it kinda, well it did go a little downhill. Firstly, the bus took ages to get from Sydney Domestic to Sydney International, but partially because it had to stop suddenly to avoid a Boeing 777. I had a chicken focaccia (fascinating stuff) then boarded the plane only to have another dinner 3 hours later. Now I've experience some turbulence in my time, but this was something else. They say it’s a non-stop flight, but they should really have said nonstop turbulence. By the way, as I am writing this two African Americans are looking into my window, this hotel appears to absolutely swarming full of them. You racist Tarquin
Arrived in LA about 15 minutes over schedule, which I suppose is a fairly good result. The LAX airport is an utter joke, reminds me of the Bangkok Departure area where it is really narrow and people are trying to give you dodgy lifts. Customs now requires that ALL visitors have their fingerprints taken and retina scanned, sophisticated equipment I must say. I couldn’t find a simcard yet so I got a taxi to Hotel. Temperature now is warm, 21 degrees and humid. I should really go and eat now, I feel like breakfast but its dinner time. Got to get into the South pattern and there it is 10pm (LA 7pm). Denny’s it is!
P.S Denny’s is a hamburger joint.
P.P.S. Yes I am negative, deal with it.
