New Zealand July 2002

The next morning dawned bright and clear. I was able to sleep in, as we did not have to leave the hotel until about 9:30am for our first appointment. The weather was the same, clear blue skies and the temperature in the mid-60's with little or no wind. We finished up our meetings and headed to the airport to begin the long march home. Our flight was supposed to leave at 4:00pm but just as we checked in, Air New Zealand informed us that it would be three hours late leaving Auckland, which of course, fouled up all our connections in Los Angeles. Luckily I was able to leave voicemails for my assistant who pulled rabbits out of a hat and got us all transportation home. I didn't get home until about 11:30pm Friday night. It is amazing how, going over, we left here Saturday afternoon and didn't get there until Monday morning but coming home, we left Friday late afternoon and got home Friday night. The tailwinds must be a lot stronger coming from New Zealand than going to New Zealand.
