We traveled on the new A380 from Changi to Sydney. For fun, the following are the kmz files that display the trip on Google Earth.
Here is the Changi takeoff with tracks overlayed on Google Earth
and Sydney landing patterns - from Google Earth
From there, we made our way to the Capital Square Hotel. Each day in Sydney starts with a view of a reflection of our hotel in the HSBC building across the street. I'm thinking of doing a short essay for the Straits Times and in Australia, I'm collecting some reflections.
Reflections of an orangish building
The distorted image of a building - ripples in the glass
Reflected copper domes
Real, not reflected: Talking statues
And a night reflection of our hotel
