Fate and a business class fare put me in seat 2A and so I shall share the story of my flight behind a member of the Royal Bhutanese House of Wangchuk. But not before we fly home from Saigon, a transit through Toyko that begins in a few hours.
For now, may I present you with the Royal Hair Clasp, as seen from 2A.
