Part IV of this "EurAsia" trip begins at sparrows fart with an hour and a half drive up to Brisbane's Domestic Airport. After checking my single bag all the way through to Beijing, I hopped on a Qantas kerosene canary to Sydney and spent my time in their Club Lounge, which eased the 2½ flight delay somewhat.
With the flight delays and an hour and a half just to clear Immigration, it was nearly 2AM before I arrived at my hotel - the Chong Wen Men Hotel, where it didn't take much rocking once I hit the fart sack.
Truth be told, I'm excited to get out and explore the city for myself in a couple of hours.
