Shocking weight!

Heathrow Airport_Terminal 5

Hold: M’s rucksack – 11.6 kg [clothes, shoes, medicines, etc.]
Wheelie suitcase -16.6 kg [camping equipment]. Yes, we are going to do it mostly in NZ, but must get rid of it afterwards…No fun travelling in Bangladesh & India with such a cargo.

Cabin: M’s rucksack – 4.9 kg [camera equipment, etc.] D’s wheelie – 9.6 kg [various gadgets: laptop 1.650 kg, binoculars 750 g, Kindle, Android, and various chargers.

Total: >40 kg. Absolutely shocking!

The Kindle doesn’t weigh much; it is a replacement for Peter’s Kindle that shattered suddenly. Amazon replaced it promptly free of charge but we didn’t want to pay for the postage to Dhaka. And possibly a customs surcharge... The Latitude at the top of the blog is courtesy of the Android, a hand-me-down from John. David is in charge of making sure that the system is going to respond accordingly to wherever we are. But for that we must get a SIM card…
