chasing the sun

Flying from Van City to Hong Kong

So that was a really long flight.

Also, it turns out that the only Airbus 340 without power outlets for the laptop and without individual movie screens was — yup — the one I got stuck with. I know, I know, boo hoo. But 14 hours is just reason for my initial disappointment. It worked out though cause I got free beer and wine.

Anyway, at Hong Kong airport now. Definitely more serene and quiet than I imagined:

Hong Kong airport

I ordered an egg tart and the lady thought I was weird for not ordering two at once… I tried to explain that I wasn’t that hungry but it’s 5 am for me and the words didn’t come together. Oh and I went on the automatic human conveyor belt in the wrong direction. Nice.

Anyway, looks like the Bangkok flight is boarding. Later!
