Saturday November 12th, 2016

TODAYS MILEAGE – 4769 miles or 7675 kilometres
TRIP MILEAGE – 12917 miles or 20788 kilometres


I know just the thing to get over a 14½ hour flight - a 9½ hour flight into Dubai (UAE) ans that's a 9½ hour flight to Cape Town (ZAF). Be Happy

I'd managed to snag and exit row seat on the "Emirates" flight to Dubai, but found that not only was my seat broken, but the audio/video system were non-operational as well. Luckily for me, the cabin manager found 3 open seats together further back in the aircraft, that I could have all to myself - so all's well that ends well.

Having said that, I'll be so overjoyed when my "African Adventures" has me checking out the locals while introducing my lips to an ice cold beer.

Here's to hoping. Be Happy
