Well im not exactly in London as yet but I am well on my way. After a very stressful and emotional goodbye I made it onto the flight as far as Los Angeles. It must have been my lucky day as I got to sit with Sonia and May.
I met this Kiwi bloke on the transfer bus who was from Hamilton...funnily enough he wasnt off my flight but off a Lufthansa one. The two of us just laughed the whole way as this crazy female taxi driver ranted and raved on about silly americans (she was american herself) and literally poured a bag of potatoe chips down her throat while maintaining a serious case of road rage....definately an unusual character who had mastered the art of multitasking.
I have to say I was pretty fond of her as she abused the crap out of the hotel porter who refused to help me with my luggage despite that being in his job desciption...I was mighty thankful for the assistance in transporting my necessaties.
Im staying at the Sheraton Four Points which is really lovely. Its this huge building on a road lined with the typical tall trees that you see in every American movie.
Unfortunately I dont have enough time to explore the city before I go tomorrow but it seems really lovely.....there isnt the thick layer of smog above the city that so many people have told me about.
Although I may not be in London im still enjoying it here....i can now say that I have officially been to the United States.....even if it was only for one night.
Well I am off to bed now to try and catch a few ZZZZZZ's.
