Great report. I think it was the stylish SARS mask he was gloating over. Does HKG
still have the thermal cameras just before you go step up to the customs desk? I registered blue-green so I guess I was not a walking case of SARS or was that Bird Flue?
Ah, yes the smell of Taipei when you get off the plane and go through customs. I know that smell! Hong Kong also had a distinct smell to it when I arrived from LAX
. I did the HKG
trip on CX
11 months ago. The coach meal was a small sandwich and fruit cup. I visited Hong Kong, Thailand and Taiwan that trip. I loved it so much I am starting to plan my next trip to Asia.
Depressing lights of Hong Kong?? I grew up in the suburbs west of New York City and found Hong Kong to be one of the most exciting 24/7 cities I have ever visited. I was blown away by the density of skyscrapers, neon lights and constant energy. I would love to live in HK
.... at least for a couple of years.
I'm leavin on a jet plane. Don't know when I'll be back again....
