Journal Entry:
Painful to get up. The only remarkable aspect about the flight was the worst airplane meal I've ever had - and I've been flying dodgy bros. all over Africa. At Gatwick jumped on a bus to Heathrow. Was walking to the Air Mauritius check in counter when I realized that I'd left a bag on the bus. Went back - the bus was gone. Went to the main Speedlink (the bus company) office at Heathrow but they couldn't get through. Eventually and hour and a half later they showed up again - and I got my bag back. It's amazing to me that I haven't lost a bag yet...

Hung out at Heathrow for four hours hours until I could check my bag. An hour before the flight was due to leave there was an announcement that all passengers should go to the gate. Where we sat for two hours - sans bathroom or drinking fountain. Another hour and a half in the plane on the ground and we finally took off. At least it's a nice plane, and the diner was much better than lunch on British Airways.
