This is the first time I have ever flown on time and the plane arrived 15 minutes before its scheduled arrival which was great. The plane was full and I was sitting next to a Syrian man who had a lot of stories to talk about and he was very friendly. Turns out this man is the main distributor of Godiva chocolate, and he was asking why I wouldn’t eat sweets, I think I might have insulted him but he was very nice.


When I went to immigration the line was going down the escalator, it was a huge amount of people, the fast track for Emirates was full. Then I spotted the GCC line, I thought it was under construction but it turns out there was one line open. There were only 6 people standing instead of the usual 200 in one line which was the case for all other lines. What amazes me is that they have a lot of immigration officers but still doesn’t seem to be enough.


I also found my bags really quickly since the conveyor belt was stuck and there were three to five airlines per conveyor belt. I saw my bags and grabbed them right away, I went outside to find the hotel car and headed right to the hotel.


I know I have to get up early to go to the meeting and the other things to follow, I know I’m going to feel hungry very soon.
