Good Morning Hong Kong!

We made it to Hong Kong!  It is 8:00am on November 3rd and we just survived about 17 hours worth of flying so far. 

We had a very nice flight to Los Angeles where I had lovely conversations with a kind Australian man who had great insight into world traveling and had some amazing tips for traveling in Thailand.  His name was Jack and he travels all over the world for business.  Although it sounds glamorous to me, Jack has similar feelings as myself get over it really quickly, especially when you are gone more than you are home.  So here's to you travels getting back to Sydney and your family and thanks for the tips!

The 15 hour flight to Hong Kong was easier for me than it was for poor Natedogg.  After we walked through 1st class and Business Class to get to our ghetto seats on our plane, we sure wished we were rich and could have afforded those nice pods in 1st class.  They have quite a sense of humor over there at Cathay Pacific.  Natedogg was pretty much needing about 15 more inches of room for his legs.  He didn't sleep much and therefore is delirious and slap happy.  Geez - I thought he was just appreciating how much being married to me was awesome!  :-)

The mountains are super close to the airport.  They look magnificent...even thought it's super foggy.


We are now chilling in the Hong Kong airport drinking some pretty strong coffee. 

It took me 5 minutes to figure out how to change Yahoo back to English.

And now we are off to Bangkok...
We'll holler when we arrive there.
Shorty & Natedogg
