Dispatch for Melbourne Australia, Monday July 7- Just arriving here in Australia has been both exciting and exhausting. I’ve done the long leg flights several times now (LA to Sydney and the marathon, LA to Melbourne) and am glad to say I am not “used” to it.

It is literally putting your body through the wringer, stretching it out, twisting it, and than tossing it on the floor. I thought I was in good shape having slept a solid 6 hours on the front end of the flight and some more naps into the mid morning.

Getting to Sydney was very exciting, though a bit clouded in and missed seeing much scenery.

It was a bit of a mad scramble, as the hour plus delay leaving LA got us into Sydney late, missing a connection to Melbourne, and the airport mobbed by hundreds here for World Youth Day. Barely made a connection to Melbourne (after waiting 30 minutes on the runway for “some other plane” to move out of our gate).

More to be blogged, but been very busy first few days with meetings, meeting people, meetings, and getting ready for the meeting.
