The flight passed without an inordinate number of alarming incidents.
I am glad to report that Delta has updated their video system, though I wonder if their choices of Snakes On A Plane, Airport, Castaway, Con Air, Passenger 57, and Air Force One were the very best.
I was able to shut out most of the screams and other flight noise by putting two audio feeds, using a two-male-to-one-female jack (which sounds like something Pres. Obama will soon evolve into promoting) into my noise eliminating Bose headset. Thus, I enjoyed simultaneously a loop of relaxing arias from Beijing Opera and an audiobook (not in a loop) of Quantum: Einstein, Bohr and the great debate about the nature of reality.
Meanwhile, I jotted some notes on a talk I’ll be giving.
I am settled in and am out and about. My first errands are accomplished, my tech is functioning properly, and all that is lacking is a pint.
Hopefully I’ll meet up with a friend and blog reader later.
My London friends have, I think, my number.
Perhaps a London blognic is in order?
