Jan 17, 2004

Got a few hour's sleep [on the plane to Delhi]. We are now flying over Afghanistan. The time locally has just been turned off, so this may mean a movie - nope; comedy shorts. Everybody Loves Raymond.

It was followed by a BBC comedy - very fun.

We are now on the final descent into Delhi. The little airplane icon on the monitor is hugging the large diamond that is Delhi, and reads "Remaining flight time: 0:08."

Still, at an altitude of somewhere above the clouds, I don't know how we will be able to meet the ETA. Maybe the fog rolled back in? I hope that we will not be diverted. Here's the captain (first [announcement] in Dutch). Ah, we're in a holding pattern of unknown duration. We shall wait...
