New Personal Record

I always thought that the 15 hours from San Francisco to Sydney were pushing the limit of endurance, and frequent family visits in Australia had me go that distance more often than I care to remember. Last Friday I found out that there are longer flights on this planet. I boarded Thai Airways 793 in New York and set a new personal record for being continuously suspended high above earth in an aluminum tube when I arrived after 17 hours at the other end in Bangkok. Soaking up the sun on the beach here at the Andaman Sea makes it all worthwhile, though. And the state-of-the-art on-board entertainment system (with Dr. Who episodes, Dexter, Malcolm in the Middle and tons of movies, all on demand) helped pass the time.
