On long flights (to Indonesia on this occasion) I always make sure to get a window-seat. Most of the time it is just to repress the urge to see the country I'm visiting but this time it was different. I was quite bored at the moment and was just looking out of my window when all of a sudden it looked like the plane dropped 3-5 kilometers towards the earth although I hadn't felt a thing. It was actually the other way around. The earth had moved 3-5 kilometers towards our plane. Where I, at first, could only identify large lakes and mountains within the landscape I could now see the different houses and even cars on the roads.
