Przylot

Some issues in the last minute, but Imade it after all.

Generally about 12 hours before departure my flight has been canceled because of fog at Warsaw Airport – i had to find out another way to get to Japan before 30.11.2006 (my visa would become invalid then).

The neares airport that was not fogged was in Berlin, Germany.

Quick impromptu overnight drive to Germany (departure from Warsaw about 10PM, arrival to Berlin about 8AM), then at 10 AM plane from Berlin to London (unfortunately it was a bit delayed).

Plane to Tokyo – because of the delay in Berlin i was 20 minutes too late but fortunately there was next plane from London to Tokyo 2 hours later.

British Airways upgraded my ticket class for free so i was supposed to have more comfortable flight.
Some photos below.

In a few days we’re going to a volleyball championship – there are not so many Polish people here (i generally do not attend nor watch them in tv but i can sacrifice now ;-) ).

Waiting area in Berlin.

Berlin Tegel

Just a photo of plane seats from Berlin to London:

View as i saw it from my seat, with and without screens  (nothing interesting to see. only flight data, temperature, distance to destination, velocity and altitude).

Here is the inside of plane London – Tokyo, all chairs had similar monitors, we had games, movies, radio and flight data.

Remote control for mentioned monitors, each chair had a pillow, blanket, headphones, socks, toothpaste and toothbrush.

iPod Camera Connector

I bought myself this thing:

Ipod Camera Connector
It is for an iPod allowing it to connect digital camera over USB.
Works fine with my canon, but of course i want to try more.
My old Pendrive Kingston Data Traveller 256MB (year 2004) works directly.

I also tried a Western Digital 80GB 2.5 inch harddrive in an USB enclosure (ICY BOX USB + FireWire), it works with additional external USB power.

Unfortunately my HAMA 35 in 1 media reader is not supported, i  assume that it needs more power from the usb port. (camera has its own battery, pendrive does not require too much, hard drive also has its own power supply).

I need to give it a try with USB hub that has external power supply.
