Ok y’all I survived the 20-some hours of traveling and am now in beautiful Melbourne! Well I’m guessing it’s beautiful…it’s just after midnight here so can’t see anything yet, but I’m sure it is! The trip wasn’t as bad as I was anticipating. In fact, the 10 hours I spent on a new airbus 380 were positively delightful, what with Thai airways delish food and free drinks. Now I’m safely ensconced in my pals’ spare room and just about ready to pass out. Thanks again Mel and Dayton for letting me crash!
