[jules' pics] April Fools

We had a slightly unusual trip to Vienna, home of the IAEA.

The Narita Express train is not running so we got the bus.

This was actually a pleasant change. It is fast, frequent, and friendly and affords great views.

Then the April Fool jokes started.

The flight crew disembarked just long enough to Geiger Count the passengers. Fortunately this did not take too long as the flight was not very full.

The only food served on this part of the trip was a tiny tub of pre-Chernobyl chicken ramen.

Stopped for 1.5 hours at Beijing Airport to change flight crew. More than 6 hours after we left Narita, it was about 6pm Japan time by the time we finally got our lunch. April Fools jokes are supposed to stop at noon. Hungry James was not amused.

Arrived rather late in Vienna, but at least we have an extra day to recover,
