Thursday, April 26, 2007For those who knew me before I was blessed with this awesome job, knew I did not like coffee at all. I know that when I was working at Metro and Velluto at PCEC, with the 4am wake ups, 5am starts, that every now and again I'd have a cappucino every now and again. But you wouldn't find me buying instant in a hurry. Coke-Cola, English Breakfast, or a Hot Chocolate would satisfy my caffine intake for the day.
My how things change. For the Colombo-Male flight, I had 2 cups to operate the sector out of Dubai. Going back into Dubai I had a whopping 4 cups and then after arriving back into Dubai found myself at Starbucks. Woke up this morning, had a nagging headache, drank some coffee and the headache was gone. Scary, very scary...
So... just arrived back from Colombo. Wanted to go out with the crew to Kandi and see some elephants, all were initially keen and then after landing into Colombo realised we were all wrecked and just wanted to rest. Getting back on the bus to the airport 36 hours later found out that they did end up going and didn't think for a minute to call me. Wasn't happy when I found out. It doesn't really matter though - I have a Singapore Colombo fight next month with even more time in Colombo so hopefully I can
Anyway, time for photos! Courtesy of Alex, because silly me left her camera at home thinking she wouldn't need it. These are from my Birmingham trip, unfortunately I didn't take any in Colombo, but there will be other opportunities!Cathedral in the middle of Birmingham City
Me outside the scaly thingo that's attached to the shopping centre
Stupid me forgot to pack socks. Bought a paid and turns out that despite the fact that the shoe size clearly said 9-12 it was too small for me.
Alex (Kazakhstan), me, Noor (Malaysia). Very cool people to be spending the day with. Plus I want Noor's poncho.
Now who's this sexy beast???
Coming up next is a lovely Tehran on the 28th, then a Can-Use on the 30th (it was originally a rest day but scheduling decided they wanted to play around with me. Then I have a Perth flight on the 3rd, so will be seeing the family and hopefully everyone else I care about dearly. After that it's Dusseldorf, then my Greek Island holiday with Yiannis!4 comments
