Home again after an eventless night flight home from Suvarnabhumi Airport on a Thai Airways Boeing 777. The cabin was almost full, but Charlotte and I got really lucky and each had three seats to ourselves (and sat right behind one another). We both managed to sleep for about 6-7 of the 10,5 hour, 8640 kilometer distance. As we filed through “monkey class” and then saw how relatively small and cramped the pricey Business Class seats were (the 777 was a bit long in the tooth), I think we actually slept more comfortably.
During a couple of the flight’s remaining hours I re-watched “Solo: A Star Wars Story”, the franchise’s spinoff prequel tale of Han Solo, the charming scoundrel, daredevil pilot, and captain of the spaceship, the Millennium Falcon. Despite Ron Howard directing, Woody Harrelson starring and mostly solid performances by a cast of live action and CG actors, the film’s still gotten mixed reviews. I thought it was entertaining and provided an interesting backstory for a few of the original trilogy’s characters. Then again, I’ve been a fan of most of the Star Wars feature films ever since I was a kid.
As the plane descended and started its path towards Kastrup International Airport, we could see that the rainy autumn weather wasn’t too different from when we took off from Bangkok, ten hours earlier. Aside from the sun peeking out for a few mintues and the 20 degree drop in temperature, that is. It’s nevertheless good to be home. I’ve signed a lease for a new creative hub/gallery/art studio. and can’t wait to get started working on it.
