Shanghai runway, Happy travellers

Everyone seems happy, it reminds me of the annual trip to Blackpool organized by the miners welfare.

Mass dandelion & burdock coach exodus.

For one blazing sun afternoon, everyone you met was another kid from your village rampaging across the promenade.

The plane sits on the runway for two hours, they give us crackers, I fall asleep.

Apocalypse Charles de gaules, industriel action

The taxi drivers are on strike, they have barricaded all routes into the airport with their cars. The train is the only way in but panic has broken out and passengers have broken the platform doors. It descends into chaos.

Some of us start to walk along the motorway.
It looks like a scene from the apocalypse.

Art Basel, Switzerland

Took 3 sweet trains, passed through germany arrived at the cute town of Basel. My leg is burning I think I have done some damage to the nerve on the last transatlantic bucket flight. But here Big money deals done the european way, with some kind of love and unbelievably posh accents on both sides of the fence.
