Thailand Day 1: Somewhere Over The Beaufort Sea

Posted by evankessler on December 24, 2008

The 13-hour flirght to Tokyo couldn’t be going any slower.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I’ve been watching the map channel the majority of the time.  There aren’t many great entertainment options on board unless you count episodes of “The New Adventures of Old Christine” in the pantheon of great in-flight time passers-by.

I think they could’ve served the meal a tad bit later.  Dinner came at 2:30pm New York time, two hours past take off and consisted of some mediocre rice and beef dish.  Since then it’s been a battle to stay entertained.  The map channel at least has a soundtrack that’s been serving as my personal “rock-a-bye baby.”  The problem is, I can only fall asleep for minutes at a time and every time I wake up we still have the Beaufort Sea in our sights, as if we’re careening through the atmosphere at great speeds but not going anywhere.


The Icy View From Above

Oh well, 5935 miles traveled and 3687 more ’til Tokyo.  That’s seven hours and twenty-two minutes  until we reach Tokyo, which is seven hours and twenty-two minutes next to this strangely silent Japanese girl wearing a medical mask and playing Tetris with abandon.

Perhaps it’s movie time.  I guess I’ll watch Bottle Shock, since it’s the only halfway decent option.

  1. Thank you. I received a great benefit to read the texts. And now I have a good mood. I am healed from major depression! ..
