It was so so hard to say goodbye to Emara. Lots and lots of tears. She knows why we are going and she was being so brave but still, we all cried a lot before we left.
Our friends, Lisa and Matt took us to the airport… They packed their car like Tetris! Checked in and THANKFULLY the Emirates staff moved us from the middle two seats on the plane to a window and middle. 5 rows from the back.
It was a massive plane. HUGE plane. Stop and google A380. Double decker.
On the plane, we watched Mockingjay 2 right away. Then we ate a surprisingly delicious meal. With real silverware. Fanc to the y.
After dinner, we took a half of an ambien. Didn’t work. Took a Valium. Didn’t work. Fell asleep on and off for a few hours. Scott took another half and has been asleep from 7:45pm – 2am. And there was NO waking him! Ha. He was asleep and in a total zombie state.
Watched Sisters (duh), worked for 6 hours and then watched Joy. Read a book, too.
Yes. 3 movies. 6 hours of work. And finished a book. And I still had extra time.
For someone who is pretty scared to fly, I would say that I had a really great experience. Scott and I both. Now onto Dubai and then Addis!
