After 14 hours, I finally made it to Brisbane. I met a fellow Stanford abroad student before we boarded who coincidentally ended up sitting next to me. For a few brief moments we were convinced we had scored one of the only empty seats on the plane between us, but that illusion was tragically shattered about ten minutes after takeoff when the flight attendant informed us someone else was moving up from the back- alas. Today will be the tough day- it's only 10 AM here, and I need to force myself to stay up till late tonight. The weirdest thing is cars driving on the opposite side- look right not left when crossing the street! Pictures will come soon (as soon as I take some).
