12.1 and Home

Rio de Janeiro International Airport, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

All my time in Brazil was spent in an airport. This is even more of a travesty than when I only saw the capital city of San Jose in 1.1 (that was a while ago wasn’t it?!).

Last time I was in Brazil was nearly four years ago, though I’m trying to figure out if there are any comparisons that I can make..

1. The buffet food is still the same in that you take a plate and then pay based on the weight of the items you’ve chosen. Cue identifying the best taste:grams ratio amongst the dishes.

2. The airport chairs are still uncomfortable

There were four flights to get from Bs As to Heathrow taking approximately 40 hours door-to-door. The first (and unfortunately shortest) was with Qatar and was well plush. From there it was all a bit downhill, but nothing much that can be done about.

After a delay and missed connection, it was back on home soil a little later than expected, but nonetheless in one piece.

Home comforts were just a two hour car journey away as my journey was complete.
