In a Kuala Lumpur taxi with the Petronas Towers nearby. After an incredibly long flight, Roger Frost arrives in Kuala Lumpur and misses the entire winter of 2003. By not reading his plane ticket, he also missed the flight home. Eventually he got back home to Cambridge, UK where he now knows that a flight that leaves at 00.05 today took off last night.
