It's 4 pm London time. I'm writing this from the lobby of the Novotel at Heathrow Airport.
I am really really tired. Mum and I have just come back from Soho where we had lunch with Jules. It was great to see her but to be honest I am too tired to appreciate anything much right now.
Things will only be worse tomorrow when we get a 3 am wake up call and a 3:45 am taxi to the airport for flight to Odessa via Vienna. Mum's story about her previous flight with Ukranian Airlines does not inspire great confidence in me. Wish us luck!
I hope to be feeling better on day two in Odessa and to have some internet time so I can do a full update on the trip so far.
Come back in a couple of days.
