Heathrow - leaving home

Heathrow: leaving home for a year

We we were waved off by Nana and the builders and arrived at Terminal 5 ready for our flight to Delhi. The boys tried out their new gizmos and Magi did a weird kind of Poirot routine using a M & S Colin the Catterpillar as a moustache. Strangely they all seemed to enjoy long haul more than a 3 hour flight to Finland - more food and movies. They watched Kung Fu Panda 2 and we kept watching our progress on the monitor from Europe into Asia. The sun set quickly as we flew east and we saw an interesting looking place from the window - as we waited outside the loo - it seemed to be a city somewhere by the edge of the Black Sea.
Over the mountains of Pakistan - the beginning of the Himalaya - there was a bit of bumpy air. The kids slept through it, while I speed-read BA's Highlife.
