Tuesday, April 04, 2006Thank goodness this hotel has free wireless. Pity I can't fit a three pinned British plug into the Japanese sockets. So I'll keep it brief.
By far the best thing I've bid for whilst in the company is the Osaka flight. I have never met more sweeter passengers, and speaking to then in the broken japanese i learnt almost 10 years ago makes the difference. Today I'm going to see Osaka Castle, and apparently this is the right time for cherry blossom trees to be in full bloom so I will definately be taking pictures. I just hope I'm not too sleep deprived to work the return flight.
BTW, the BCRC is VERY nice on board. I heard a ghost story actually. A crew member went on first break , changed into his pyjamas and everything, and climbed down the stairs. Just so you know, it's pretty secure, there's a keypad you need to acivate to get in and everything, much like the cockpit. Anyway, this crew opens the curtains about to go inside and finds a middle aged woman in there. He says to her, you can't stay here, this is for crew rest only. She says that's fine, sorry for the trouble, but can he please tell her husband to take his medication. He's in seat number blah blah.
So he goes to meet the woman's husband, tells him his wife said he should take his medication now. And what does the husband say? My wife's dead. She's in the Bulk Cargo Hold.
PS Japanese TV totally rocks! I have no idea what they talk about but it's so much more entertaining to watch a game of baseball/soccer hybrid, than it is to watch BBC and CNN. Every single advert is like that Wokstar ad for Kantong. Very cartoonish and over the top. I love it! 2 comments
