Our Rotaplast crew met in San Francisco full of excitement and anticipation! We loaded up on an Emirates A380 Airbus and landed 15 hours later in Dubai; the flight was was very smooth, the flight attendants were lovely and friendly. During our 8 hour layover, some enjoyed the spa services, showers, meals and shopping at the Dubai airport complex. Less than five hours later, we arrived in Chittagong to meet a wonderful group of Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Agrabad.
