Well, I am on the other side of customs now. The customs officer was very unpleasant, she must of known I was a newby and didn’t care. She kept asking for a document, waiting for me to get it out and close my wallet again. Then she would ask me for the next piece of documentation, so I would have to go through all that again. I mumbled by the end that she could have told me all that at once. I think she realised she was being a bitch and made the effort to try to crack what may have been a smile. It was hard to tell. I think she may need a new job...... The guy at the x-ray was nice and helpful, like that.
The Qantas woman at Melbourne was nice and helpful, and laughed at my jokes. That’s good. I am travelling in a window seat the whole way.
That’s all I have for now.
