Another thing I miss about living in Beijing is the opportunity to travel, not just around China, but all over Asia. Of course, the fabulous city of Hong Kong was a frequent destination, usually to attend meetings, but sometimes just to get “out.” A few months before moving back to Minnesota, I got to fly down to Hong Kong on China Southern Airlines brand-spanking-new A380, the double-decker airplane. This was the glorious view as we were landing.
For those of you familiar with the city, you can see Central, Tsim Sha Tsui, and the old Kai Tak Airport. And if you ever find yourself flying into Hong Kong, be sure to get a window seat!
