One does not simply fly to China, either. I’m waiting at the airport now (Birmingham, of course) – after going through the longest security queue I’ve ever seen in my life, knowing that it’s not even like I have to get this flight and then I’m there.
I’ve got a seven hour flight to Dubai (setting off in an hour), then a three hour wait and a seven hour flight to Beijing. Fun times. I’m flying with Emirates though, which is the best. If all I upload the next time I get on is pictures of plane food, don’t be surprised.
Obviously, the visa issue worked itself out (in that it came earlier than we expected) and I got currency, too. Everything’s fine and I’ll be in Beijing in less than 24 hours.
I have to go and get the flight now, so I’m keeping this short. See you all on the other side!
