Relaxing at Auckland Airport

I'm sitting in the gate lounge at Auckland airport, which in itself is an incredible feat! I've been battling a head cold for the last couple of days and it came to a head last night. Cold shivers, coughing, headache, so much so that I was seriously doubting if I could go ahead with the trip. I dosed myself up on codral , and amazingly, I woke up this morning feeling reasonable. True it was 4am in the morning, so how can one possibly feel reasonable at that time!!
So my car is parked at the airport parking place, I have my tickets to Guangzhou then to Paris, have 595 euro ( $1000) in my wallet ( actually euro notes are quite plain looking compared to NZ money) , have passed through customs ( and yes I always beep and have to get cross examined) . I took a photo of the trusty plane that will get me there, but I couldn't download the app to share it here :-(
So I'm still feeling a bit crappy, but by the time I get to Paris, I will be just fine and dandy.

I met these lovely people getting off the plane in China. So instead of trying to fill in 7 1/2 hours, we drank and ate and solved the worlds problems! Casey is from the north shore going to London for a family get together, Cristian original from Argentina is off to wedding in Italy and Wagner is going back to Brazil :-)
