I have arrived. Well, not quite, I have another 10+ hour flight to go but I confess to completely enjoying my last flight in the Club World section of British Airways. Lady T told me about the sleeper seats but I didn’t really get the whole concept until I was lying down in one.
The flight attendant passed out glasses of champagne, in which I did not indulge, and packaged nuts (ok, so they weren’t warmed). I watched the movie The Painted Veil with Edward Norton and Naomi Watts, set in China, just to get me in the mood. I could actually select the movie of my choice. Am looking foward to watching another one on the next flight. I took 2 half sleeping pills so my sleep was not quit optimal. Oh well. I refrained from the in flight duty free (which was AWESOME) – will save it for the last leg.
Heathrow’s shopping is also quite impressive. I strolled through the mini-Harrods and now know where Mr. U and I will be doing some of our Christmas shopping. Now I am off to take a shower and use some of that new moisturizer I bought. My skin is so fatigued. Even BA can’t prevent cellular dehydration.
The only disconcerting moment thus far was when I was told I could only have one carry on. They did not tell me this in Sao Paulo when I boarded with two. Really rather hard to consolidate at the last moment, but I managed. Let’s just hope all those important papers arrive in China … and me along with them.
