Day 1: Landing in London

sunny 26 °C

Day 1:

We’ve just arrived in London and the jetlag has hit hard! We had a 14 hour flight from Melbourne to Doha in Qatar, stepping off from a Melbourne temperature of 13 degrees celsius, to a stinkig hot and humid 32! After two hours stop over, it was back for a 7 hour flight to Heathrow airport in London. My cousin Geoff greeted us at th airport and took us to my mother’s aunt’s house, where we are staying for the next week while we are in London. Tomorrow we’re having a normal day of shopping and meeting some relatives. Hopefully I’ll be able to meet my cousin Amy tomorrow, and hopefully I’ll have a better impression on her than my own parents did, as she still remembers how much they made her walk around when they were here. So, to all my friends and family, Charles and I have landed in London safely, and are about to sit down with my great aunt Lynn for dinner, after which I’m most likely to crash for the night, since the jetlag is still in my system.

Dale Chapman, signing off.

Glad you arrived OK. Amy loved walking - just ask her! I forgot to give you a slap to give to Geoff but I guess I'll let him off for coming to pick you up from the airport. I hope you recover from your jetlag quickly - no time to waste! You will need to come home soon - I forgot to feed the fish and buy bread yesterday. I remembered to turn off the computers and put the bins out but apparently that's not good enough. Love mum.

Look forward to hearing all about your exploits and hope you and Charles have a great time.
