Hong Kong




Jason and I both made it to Hong Kong and easily found each other.

I didn't realize my plane would travel this way, but we flew down to Hong Kong over China. The ground was mainly cloaked with clouds, but when it was clear, the land was beautiful. Instead of looking like a patchwork quilt like flying over the States, the farms looked like the stripes on woven fabric. There were clusters of villages and one particularly beautiful town at the base of a mountain.

I LOVED flying into Hong Kong. The mountains were cloudy, but our plane flew low enough to see the islands and water. We flew around the entire island before landing so I feel like I got a wonderful view of Kowloon, the New Territories and Hong Kong Island. Their new suspension bridge looked incredible when we flew by and barges were cutting through the water stacked with the same containers we see heading down the rails. High rises were reaching up to the plane and the mountains are verdant.

We were delivered to the hotel in a Rolls Royce -- quite comfy and stylish! We have the most wonderful room! I think I could just stay in the hotel until it is time to fly to Jiangxi. We have a suite and the bedroom and living room both have flat panel tv's -- there is also a tv in the gorgeous bathroom. The best thing about the room is that both the living room and bedroom have huge windows overlooking the harbor. We are looking at Hong Kong Island and I love how the skyline, that stretches along the harbor, is lit at night.

This is the perfect place to unwind after our whirlwind week and get ready for the next adventure!

WOW!!!!!!! What a beautiful place to be - indoors and outside, too.

So happy to hear that the flight was enjoyable, that you and Jason met up without concerns, and that you have some time to decompress, enjoy yourselves, check you cameras, and prepare to meet your new little daughter!!

Your written pictures are the best!

The red thread doesn't need to stretch around the world any more!!
