In all our years of travel, we have never seen Heathrow so quiet: not a soul in the check-in area (other than us and the staff of course), no-one in front or behind for passport control or X-ray. Apparently that is quite normal for a Saturday morning in Terminal 1.

It was our first time with BMI and I can't say I was that impressed – it was probably the most uncomfortably hot flight ever! The first time I asked them to turn the heat down I was told it was because we were in one of the first rows after business class. The second time the attendant said it was as a result of us sitting near the engine. Please staff, don't insult our intelligence!

Another first for us on this trip was an electronic visa. We organised it all on line, and expected to sail through the passport control here in Yerevan; so I was rather surprised when she asked to the hard copy of my e-visa. Oh well, we were still through and out of the airport before the time we were due to land.

The hotel is very centrally located and we have a massive suite. A quick drink in the bar (or it would have been quick if the service had not been so incredibly slow) and then to bed. It's now nearly 01:00 here in Yerevan. Goodnight all.
