|Latest: Now scheduled to leave for Tuvalu Thu 03:50, arriving 06:10. I will still return from Tuvalu as originally scheduled on Thu 14:00. Hence my orig 3 day trip to Tuvalu becomes 8 hr day-trip. May just as well, for an island state 26 sq km surface area. |
Met many interesting people & new friends also delayed on this flight. Gained much insight into Pacific cultures and politics. Interesting chats with stranded EU officials, retired Fijian senior official, UNDP consultant, Afghan-based Fijian British Royal Marine soldier, Indian Muslim businessman with HK SAR citizenship, etc. My mind is now overloaded with new knowledge, info, viewpoints, etc.
