While At Heathrow


I have to say that I really like Heathrow airport, the security wasn’t that bad. There was an annoying person sitting at the security console who was nothing short of rude to a lot of people coming to the counter, but still I was happy I got through without incident. The best part is walking around and doing some window shopping while walking around. I dropped off my bag at the British Airways lounge so that I can walk around freely. First thing I do is go straight to WH Smith and picked up some magazines to read while in Kuwait, and one to read while I was getting a bite to eat. I stopped by one shop to browse through the watches they had, and then I entered Dixons to see how much they priced electronic items in the UK. I have to say that the TomTom Radar is one very cool looking GPS Unit, and I would want to try it but they don’t have a working edition for the middle east yet. The other thing you notice is that items are priced directly at a 1 to 1 conversion, so whatever item is going for $100 would go for 100 pounds which is too much.


So after going into HMV for a bit I decided to get a bite to eat at the seafood bar which I have been going to for over a decade and I was happy as hell I was getting my crab and shrimp salad with a coke. I knew it would satisfy me before getting on the plane, and then I heard it was time for boarding but before leaving I stopped by Molton Brown to pick up the aftershave and then I took a long walk to the farthest gate in the terminal, Gate 25! From what it seems the plane was full, and I only watched some anime for a bit before passing out. The anime was great but I couldn’t go to sleep right away!
