Right. I now have a cold beer in front of me so I'm willing to give it one more try but this time I'm writing it as a Word doc so at least I can save it.
The flight was fine and the food excellent. We were about 20 minutes late landing but then were stuck on the runway for a further 40 minutes while they located a free staircase. Eventually we got off and walked across a quarter of a mile of runway to Arrivals where Volatiana was waiting for me. I gave my passport to her assistant who then arranged that we didn't have to bother with immigration or customs so by the time we collected my baggage we were in the arrivals hall where about a thousand people were waiting for their friends and rellies. It pays to have connections.
