Leaving temporarily the Far East in order to visit our two awesome grandsons Raoni and Tien (...and our number-one daughter Ulrike with number-one son-in-law Chris) in Canada, doing the first 14-hours long leg of the trip with Air Asia X (“Now Everyone Can Fly Xtra Long”) in a huge, clean and rather arctic Airbus A 340-300 from Kuala Lumpur's KLIA-LCCT Sepang to London's Stansted Airport for the all-inclusive steal of only MYR 528.- or US$ 155.- per person, one way, enjoying en-route fantastic aerial views of (i) the dry and wild mountainscapes of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan, (i) the blue Caspian Sea and (iii) the snow-covered peaks of the Caucasus Mountains on our starboard side and noticing in midair the catch 22 “…that in an airplane there is absolutely no place in the world to go, except to another part of the airplane…”, therefore killing time with the help of the whistle-blowing game “Linguistic Warning Signals” ("western food", “ecological”, "sustainability”, "green”, "community based”, "one world", "alternative", "hand-made", "organic", "safe water" etc.: every time we read these or similar buzz-words there are slimy expats or greedy locals who either want to greenwash their business or, at best, suffer a helpless-helper syndrome and want independent backpackers to pay for their luxurious lifestyle...).

Taking an EasyBus van for a reasonable GBP 9.99 or US$ 15.70 per person from London's Stansted Airport to the illustrious Baker Street in Central London (without meeting a single one of its famous residents: neither Sherlock Holmes nor Basil the Great Mouse DetectiveSherlock HoundDanger MouseSexton BlakeCarland Cross or James Black) - welcome to Old Blighty.
