I’m now in London at Heathrow Airport and have completed the first leg of my very, very long journey… I’ve had a sandwitch, some Orange Drink (thank you for the laughs, Bill) and of course the mandatory British bag of potato chips. How they manage to eat that stuff every day, I don’t know.

The next plane to Hong Kong is scheduled to take off in about two hours, and I plan to be on it. The gate hasn’t been announced yet, and getting to it can take some time - if you thought Heathrow was a large airport, you were wrong; it’s huge.

I’m also working on my sleep schedule to minimize the jet lag. My problem is that I’m unable to think in time zones, so I guess I’ll just try to sleep as little as possible on this flight and do most of the sleeping on the next. That should do the trick.
