Time to Go East Again Blog 2 Connection via Dubai

July 3, 2016

Could not settle on plane. Watched films and David Beckham.  Read a little of my book.

Most amazing thing on this fantastic Airbus 380 was the entertainment. Touch screen and also could watch the plane take off by looking via cameras situated on the aircraft. Not for those who do not like flying I think.

Then as we came into Dubai the most marvellous scene outside the window.  I think all Arab cities from the air look like jewellery boxes with all the strands of gold spilled out. A beautiful sight.



This view sparked a conversation with a man in front of me on the plane in transit to Bangladesh. He was caring for his mother like every good boy should do.  But he had the broadest Oldham  (Nr Manchester) accent I had heard in a long time.

Now waiting in near the gate for my onward flight to Japan. I am tired it is nearly 02.00am and it is 30 degrees.
