yep! flying with Qantas for 1st time
It was Sunday 20th and the Oz adventure was about starting. I couldn't believe I was leaving the American Continent on Sunday night and will arrive in Brisbane (Oz) or as the locals call it "Brissy" on Tuesday morning, how weird!!!Well,there are 15 hours time difference + the long flight.

Big drove me to the airport and he stayed with me until I crossed security. He didn't leave until I was ready and walking to my gate, how kind of him! I was expecting a long line at Quantas check point, but there was no one. Plus the lady at the front desk was super friendly. So good I wasn't by myself at the airport; otherwise, I'd have had  problems handling all my luggage.

Well, after clearing customs and going through security it was still early and decided to take a walk, but ther was no much to see, plus it was getting late and some places started to close.
Minigunther wanted caffeine...
Mmm, shops at the airport, specially a big one, should be open 24/7! I sitll had time to kill and decided to do it in a very American way: having coffee at Starbucks ;)

It might not have been the best coffee ever, but was ok. Actually my main purpose there was to get internet, but I couldn't and I really wanted to since I wanted to email my friend in Oz, the one who would pick me up in Brisbane.  Oh well, I decided to stay there not that long and went to my gate in order to watch some people, hehe.

The gate was crowded, found a seat and started to write - a writer is always a writer. Right before leaving Dan's place I checked my email and found a mail from my editor saying he'd like me to write an article about the travel to highlands I did before leaving Peru, sweet! I've already written about it on TB.

So this would be more about changing the style and making it more formal.

It was almost 11pm when we started to board. The plane was very big an since I couldn't pick up my seat online, I ended up sitting between a big and sort of old lady, who turned up to be kind but just at the very end of the flight, and an old guy who was embroidering the whole time. Not even 15min after taking off, they served dinner. I ate a bit and took my earplugs. My plan was trying to sleep as much as possible, so the jetlag wouldn't affect me.

Lights went off, nap time! zzz
