Qantas came good at the 11th hour and gave me an upgrade to Business Class as I boarded the flight. Managed to get 7 hours sleep! The new Skybeds rock, you actually lie flat. Thanks Qantas!
Highlights from the US
Buying a country music CD (Big & Rich) and cranking it while driving the rental SUV through the American MidWest country side.
Letdowns from the US
Listening to American Top 50 countdown and hearing the Black Eyed Peas song butchered. Can you believe they had to change the lyrics from “Don’t Phunk with my Heart” to a pathetic “Don’t Mess with my Heart” to suit American radio? Oh please…
