Arriving in China

We have just landed after a 9 hour flight - thank god i managed to sleep 7 out of the 9 hours :). The food was not that bad (no ice cream though!!).

The On-flight entertainment was ok i managed to watch 'How to Train Your Dragon' - not bad. The Captain also tried to convice all the passengers that we should be abel to see the Great wall 15 mins before we landed. However both Cabin Crew and myself couldn't find it.

As soon as i land the first thing i get is a text from O2 explaining the charges that i will get it i dare to use my phone -'Using data while travelling in China cost £6/MB' !!!!!!! but O2 will cap this as £40 or 50MB - how nice of them! As we depart the plane i have also managed to pick up a cold :*( and im breathing like a Darth Veda.
The scale of this competition finally hits home when after having my passport checked i see a huge poster in the airport promoting the Sport Accord Combat Games. This post is the same size as me!
It gets even better - we are met at the airport by a mini bus and on the motorway to the airport one every lampost is a poster promoting the games.
