Im coming back to the UK early.

I had a choice of two flights back. A 747 or an A380. Since ive not flown on an A380 i chose that flight.

Currently at [personal profile] jhaelan's house in Singapore abusing his bandwidth. Flying on to Kuala Lumpar tomorrow morning. I have changed my plans slightly and will now skip Bangkok after Ho Chi Minh City because of the flooding and what follows after the cut.

cut for medical ick and instruments aka minor surgery )

After the medical stuff I went and watched some of the singapore sevens at the singapore cricket club. Then went for chilli crab with [personal profile] jhaelan

We then went toa MindCafe where [personal profile] jhaelan beat me twice at scrabble even though in one game I had a 7 letter word. I blame the drugs :)

My flight was at 05:50 GMT :) Possibly the last Qantas flight to leave Sydney.

So we made it Singapore which was fine for me since thats where I wanted to be.

Other people on the plane were going on to frankfurt or indeed connecting to elsewhere. must suck for them.
I dont need a Qantas flight until Nov 30th so I might be okay and from Hong Kong there are probably several options back to london.

Admittedly my stop in Bangkok might be at risk for other reasons anyway.

After about 5 hours sleep I get up to get ready for my cab to heathrow at 07:45. The cab turns up promptly and I make it to heathrow with plenty of time to spare. So had breakfast at Plane Food which fine if not a little pricey. Spent some money in the Nokia store to get a few bits and bobs.

On the plane I ended up having two seats to myself which is always good. I should really remember to ask for vegan meals in future given my probable lactose intolerance. Although I suspect BA do that as an option anyway.

I watched most of 3 films. Thor was enjoyable. Fast Five was enjoyably ludicrous. Sucker punch was interesting with some great fight scenes although im not that upset I missed the ending due to us landing.

To get to my hotel I decided to take a bus to South Station. The bus was confused though at one point it converted to overhead electrics instead of a normal engine and then it went in its own tunnel like it wanted to be tube. There were no longer bus stops but stations.

Once I got to South Station I got confused and it was raining so I got a cab to my hostel.


My hostel is fine if not a little basic. There is free wifi though.

After attempting a nap I decieded to go on a flaneur and see where I ended up.

I ended up at Fenway Park where I queued for game day tickets for about 2 hours and got in.

So I saw the Red Sox beat the Yankees at Fenway Park from a pretty good seat although it did go to extra an inning so by the time I had walked back to my hostel I had been up for 24 hours. Thankfully caffiene now has an effect on me so the Dr Pepper and Coke I had drunk during the day kept me awake.
