(Hey, TravelBlog, Hong Kong isn't a country.)

I'm in Hong Kong, at the airport, enjoying a little quiet time before the next flight. Min picked me up at a little after 7 AM and now it's 13 hours later. My route takes me up the East Asian coast, across the top of the Pacific, and down, with today's (tomorrow's, I guess) terminus being Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Not much to say other than that I took my World Bank friends to dinner last night, feeding the three of us handsomely for $40, and that I've already finished 3 books on this trip and soon may have to scout out another as I'm halfway through the fourth.

I confess that I love airports. I like flying, but I find even the crummiest airport delightful.

TravelBlog is gluing up and I can't post my transit map. I'll do the route as two maps over the weekend. Perhaps I'll join the crowds of people wandering about looking for outlets under the furniture.

Have a safe and pleasant trip, even if it's very long! Traveling such a distance, in hours not days, is still miraculous to me...

Miraculous to me, too! Quite flippy, actually.
