#1342 Paris, I bid you adieu

My body's at 6:30am, current local time in Dubai (where I'm writing this from) is 8:30am, I'm soon to fly out to Sydney (where it's 2:30pm) and then onto Auckland (4:30pm). Time's a tricky bugger, and I've had two hour's sleep. Then there are the temperatures. 30 degrees when I left Paris, 43 here in Dubai, 18 in Sydney, 11 in Auckland. Lucky for me, I'm travelling with a friend who has an Emirates Gold Card so we're in the business class lounge. All the food, drinks, showers and internet access you could ask for. But all I want is a bed. 22 hours from home. While I am excited to get back to Auckland, it sucks to leave Paris. I love that city. Special thanks to my host Tessa and friends Harriet, Wladimir and Agathe who kept me entertained for the duration of my trip. Abientot mes amis.
