No major disasters; my first flight was delayed by two hours, and my layover was two hours, but I somehow made my connection anyway.

I sat next to a model on the plane, and she showed me pictures of herself on an elephant in Thailand wearing a $3000 dress. (She was wearing the dress. The elephant was unclothed.) The decision to have her get up on an elephant was made on the fly, when the photographer spotted an elephant out the car window. Upon negotiating the use of the elephant itself, the photographer decided to do the shoot atop a nearby hill. There was no obvious way to get the elephant’s block (or whatever you call the thing you use when you’re mounting an elephant) up the hill, so they had her get on the elephant at the bottom and ride it up. She was riding bareback, which made the journey uncomfortable.
