Live from Excellence

Hi all

Arrived after a very long 10 hour flight with no IFE which made the flight even longer

Getting through Cancun Airport was a breeze apart from us having to open one suitcase for inspection - I think they were getting to see if I was importing vast quantities of tube socks

Private transfer here was also OK and after a couple of hicups with our room we are all sorted now

Have already chatted to some staff we met last year and after a shower in a minute we are going to have a drink on out RTT and then dine in the Spice tonight and by the time we have a drink in the X Lounge we will have been awake for just about 24 hours

More on Wednesday

PS It is good to be back to one of our second homes as it does feel like that

I am sure you had the feeling that it would never come. It is so much easier for us Yanks.. Only within a few time zones.

Congrats, and see you on Tuesday.

Glad you made it FFM. Have a great first full day. Who did you fly with though and what was the problem with the IFE? Maybe I better buy an extra book just in case!
