Hi from San Francisco. After 11 hours and 5400 miles I landed yesterday in SF. It was warm and the sun was sinking, which helped me feel more awake as it was 1.30 in the morning body clock time. Did not really sleep on the plane. We had a primary meal experience at about 3pm UK time, after which they dimmed the lights for night time, although it was light outside. We then had afternoon tea after midnight UK time. For the main meal I had lemon garlic chicken with fresh fig and pineapple lentil salad, followed by an Indian curry and an international cheese selection consisting of Shropshire Blue and Cornish Yarg. Afternoon tea was a trio of sandwiches and a piece of lemon ginger Stilton cheese with a scone, jam and cream. I watched the A Team film and an episode of The Office (US version).
I'm part of the advance party of 4 for our conference and we went out last night for a light meal. I had two giant mushrooms stuffed with cheese. None of us were particularly hungry, but we wnated to stay up until 10pm local time to get acclimatised.
