from Journal entry of Sept. 22
I am in Sydney airport. I just drank a Regular Latte from Gloria Jeans. It was quite good. The 14.5 hour flight from LA was reasonable. I spent about 10 hours trying to sleep and actually slept 6 or 7. People kept stepping on my feet, talking loudly beside me and ,in one case, dropping something on me. The person beside me, David, is going to the same conference I am going to, Amaroo. He has attended for many years and spoke enthusiastically about it. I’m waiting for my flight from Sydney to Brisbane. I’m glad I stayed in L.A. an extra day before this part of the travel.
It’s 9.30 a.m. here on Saturday. At home, I think it’s 7.30 p.m. on Thursday. It’s confusing to me. I left Wednesday night and arrived here Saturday morning. I get a day back on the way home. How does that work? If I get a newspaper on Friday morning and look up how stocks will do the next day and then call back to the States and place a trade, will I win? I’m looking forward to checking into my hotel and cleaning up.
