Damn this flight is long — I feel like I’ve been on this plane forever, but we’re apparently still six hours from Istanbul, after which I’ve got another two hours to Tel Aviv. I’d sleep, but I’m trying to avoid horribly jet lag by not sleeping until I get to my hotel, which should be around midnight (Tel Aviv time). May be tough — I’m already feeling a bit groggy.

I’m watching the end of a sunset over the mountains of Kazakhstan (I think). Only the outlines of the mountains are visible, surrounded by orange then yellow then green then blue — all melting into one another. In the dark blue/black of the sky, just above the wing, there’s a crescent moon. It’s hard to tell if the sun is setting or rising, as we effectively flying back in time seven hours… perhaps it’ll just remain like this for a while.
