Back in UK

For those who don't know and I haven't been boring with the details for the past three months, I am back in the UK for the first time in nearly 10 years. Not since I did an attachment in psychiatry at Ealing Hospital just after SARS died down in the summer of 2003, have I stepped back on to British turf. It's been a long time coming. I have been in contact with everything British since I went back to Hong Kong, from the news, entertainment programmes and sports. However having physical contact with anything to do with Great Britain has been quite a while.

There are few things that I have observed since stepping off the plane just a few hours ago.
  • Online check-ins are great. It saves time, you can pick your seat and print your own boarding pass. However check in early to find the seat that you want. I ended checking in just a few hours before I left for the airport and ended up with limited seating options.
  • The limited seating options wasn't too bad. As the flight wasn't full, the two seats next to me were empty. For the whole flight, I could sleep straight!
  • Having vacant places next to me meant I couldn't chat up any sexy passengers. Flight attendants, as always, look really nice (even the male ones). This augmented expectation of reality should mean I have got to stop reading erotic fiction and watch porn so much.
  • Children less than two years old shouldn't fly, especially on intercontinental flights which last 10+ hours.
I will be boring you with details of my trip later.
