Team trip

I make the travel back in the plane with Kim, the two Eriks and Henna (Finne Boonen). Kim was very delighted with my tablet pc. He tried it for a while and made some cool drawings with ArtRage. I'll probably post them here later.

One small step

And with one step out of the airplane, I set foot on (technically) China for the first time! me and Francisco go through the passport verification process without any hassle, though he was concerned. He left me when we found the wikimania team waiting for me, but I met him moments later while he was with his girlfriend he so much talked me about. Then I took the bus. More coming later.

Endless acquaintances

I leave Hugo and João, and meet even one more portuguese guy in the same flight! I met Francisco when leaving the plane. They were pointing us to the corridor but we decided we didnt want sight-seeing, so we stood there at the entrance of the plane, talking a bit in english and then in portuguese. When we were forced inside the airport, we met Joe Foss, the mexican guy, when asking him to take us a photo (Francisco later couldnt find it, so it probably was taken with my cam. You'll find out later on why I couldnt retrieve the photo from it)

The norwegian scientist who came in my right in the plane helps me find my way through Amsterdam airport and the portuguese guy who came in my left follows. I end up going alone to the boarding line, since both of them were going to other places. More coming later...

Left my uncle's house with my cousin by 1:30pm, took the bus, the subway and another bus to get to the airport. My mom called me while we were giving instructions to a woman who was asking us for info. More coming later...
