Living a Malaysian Life

GRU…Sao Paulo

Leave a comment

Long flight..close to 15 hours, with 2 rests in between, but still left us shagged when we got to the hotel. Managed to catch the ending of “The curious case of Benjamin Button”, it was nice, but a bit sad and all. Did not like the ending, would have preferred if it ended on a high note.

Also managed to watch “The Remen Girl”, not really substantial, but fun and light! Got me really hungry for Japanese noodles though. It was a day flight, so not really able to sleep during the designated rest hours, so watch movies la in the crew bunk.

It was around 8 pm here by the time we got to the crew hotel, but it meant 2 am in Dubai and waay past my bedtime.

Woke to good news though, Linda got through her driving signals test, and her road test has been arranged for the 21st. Will be off flying then, so not sure what sort of arrangement we are going to do to fit in the kids school and all.

Did not go out today, other than a short walk. Will have to do the city visit another day, but Sao Paulo looks like a large, gritty street with lots of people and cars. Haven’t seen a bus so packed liked the one on the streets for a long long time.

A shot from the hotel room window, not much to see unfortunately, but its a great day outside.

Had a nice long breakfast, going to the gym and turning in for a long nap hopefully before packing back to Dubai on another 15 hour jaunt home.

Another shot outside the window. Impressive looking bridge.

The good news is I have 5 days off after this, and that would be fun!
