It's never easy!

Greetings from London!

The night before leaving, of course, I get deathly sick and didn't get any sleep. In the morning I was trying to pack and could barely move. I don't know if everything just caught up with me in the end but of course I could barely pack, and just realized I forgot my microphone for Skype, who knows what else I forgot.

I decided to spend a little money to upgrade to business class on the way over so I could at least try to sleep. Luckily I started feeling a little better and was able to sleep most of the way.

When I get to the baggage claim, I find that the airline had broken one of my wheels on my baggage. So here I was still feeling somewhat weak and trying to drag this 50 lb. bag with one wheel through heathrow to the bus station.

Luckily I was able to get an early checkin at the hotel and slept for another 5 hours and felt pretty good when I woke up so I went back to the airport and bought a new bag. I went cheap with the old bag and once again it costs me!

Hopefully I'll be fully well tomorrow for my trip to Dubai, otherwise I might just be seeing the inside of the hotel.
