In Transit to Hangzhou

Sunday, 08 July 2012 16:09 By  
Late planes, missed flight, no language skills, traveling alone, the adventure begins.... Spent some quality time at Brisbane Airport departure lounge. Arrived early but the flight was delayed about an hour. Lucky I took more than one book to read as I finished one before I was on the plane. It was a pleasant flight with chinese movies and food. Arrived in Guangzhou as my connecting flight was leaving. Immigration took ages but was easy enough when it was my turn at last. No problem swapping to another flight for Hangzhou despite language disability. free wireless while I waited another couple of hours. Discovered my mobile has global roaming on which it isn't supposed to and can't login to optus to turn it off. Wireless is widespread but retrieving mail is perplexing, sometimes works, sometimes says my password is wrong. Couldn't send an email to M. aster Li to say I would be late. Arrived in Hangzhou 3.5 hours late by the time I retrieved luggage and of course Master Li had given up on me so I went to look for a cab into town. Checked in before midnight, not by much and found I was in alively part of town. Quite close to YHA accomodation so live music bars, international food etc. close by. Had a Bittburger off the tap right next door and went to bed. Accomodation is compact but very comfortable. No noise gets in from the live music etc. just outside.
