Finally at camp woke up this morning and walked down to breakfast, only had about 3 hours sleep. Went down and on the way down i came across a strange animal one of the other guys yelled out Jesse what is it? i said its like a fluffy rat, turns out to be a squirrel.

Wow what a day, only got 3 hours sleep last night this jetlag is beginning to be a pain.

Well after leaving Melbourne on a crappy rainy day here i am in New York. After traveling 19636.7 Km and spending 25 hours on a plane i finally made it.

I had only 1 hour to get through customs than onto another plane inbound for New York which took another 14 hours. I never understood why people cant sleep on airplanes until today!

The customs in America are so strict compared to Melbourne and South Korea, sniffer dogs everywhere and all guards caring weapons which i was suprized about. After clearing ... read more
