The 'breakfast' part of my Glasgow B&B started too late for my 7:10 taxi, so it was egg roll at the airport for me. I've already devoured half an excellent book bought for the journey, although as security swabbed all four of my cameras I realised its title was slightly suspicious - 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' by Mohsin Hamid. So now I drop into cattle-mode, prodded and herded, going where I'm told. The first hop is with EasyJet to Paris. The longer sector come later and I should reach my destination on Saturday at 4am UK time.
