And touchdown! After almost 16 hours in the air from Detroit I land about 45 minutes early at Hong Kong’s International Airport.
I compose myself, grab a little money and then find the bus to Mong Kok.
Above was just around the corner from where I was staying. I wasn’t resting for long because I then jumped on the train into Hong Kong island. A friend from college had moved back to Hong Kong about a year ago and I was only able to give him a heads-up to my arrival a few hours prior to leaving NYC. He was ready with a warm and very American welcome, beer pong!
