Since I am spending about 10 hours in the lovely Los Angeles Airport I decided to pay 55 dollars to get entrance into the Air New Zealand Club. Let me tell you this is the best 55 dollars I have ever spent. Seriously! I feel almost like I am in a zen type spa and that someone is going to ask me if I want a seaweed wrap or a facial at any minute. I wish my friend Leah was with me because they have some tasty sushi available. Everything is free once you pay the entrance fee. The lounge have these cool blinds that automatically go down when the sun is on them and when the sun goes down the blinds go back up. Also, staff walks around with appetizers and then you can help yourself to the open bar and make yourself a drink. I must say I did have one glass of wine which is just what I needed since this is going to be such a long day. They have food setup to eat whenever you are hungry....did I mention the yummy sushi??? They also have showers to freshen up....which I think I might need to do since I have been up since 4 AM EST.
I also made a friend his name is Matthew and he works here in the lounge. He is actually from New Zealand and works the front desk here at the lounge. I could sit here and listen to him talk for hours. The one thing though he is a Chargers fan and I told him that I wouldn't hold that against him.
Other than Matthew I haven't made any friends! I do think I am the only American in the lounge because everyone is either speaking a different language or has a strong Aussie/New Zealand accent.
Thus far my plane is only delayed 30 minutes. Well I will try to write sometime on Friday at some point since I miss Thursday completely.
