surrounded by clouds

On travelling

I’m back blogging from an airport.

Last time it was the supremely impressive Dubai International Airport, with it’s dedicated Emirates terminal, free wireless, recliner seats, and an indoor, three-storey waterfall. This time it is the rather less impressive Cape Town International Airport, with no free internet (I’m back to using the 3G – which is a bit of a let down after the awesome wireless speed in the office this week), no recliners (and in fact no seats – since they’re all occupied and I’m currently sitting on the floor), and no waterfall.In fact there isn’t technically even a terminal building, since they’re in the midst of renovations at the moment and Domestic Departures is actually a marquee, or to be more blunt – a tent. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

All this to say – the library’s done with and I’m heading back to Jo’burg! Hooray!

In summary: unimpressed and temporary-homeward bound.
