I’m on my way to Italy!
Time for some excellent local chicken satay and Hainan pork in the once men-only dining area – before coffee and cake on the verandah overlooking the Padang where cricket has been played since British colonial times. Is it any wonder that today most of the active members of the club are cricket-mad Indians?
The casual dining experience is momentarily dramatised when unwittingly I break a major house rule by answering my ringing mobile phone. Joy placates the dining room captain who eventually stops waving his arms in the air at my transgression.
Now for perhaps my favourite airline experience on SWISS International to Zurich and Rome.
