It’s amazing how bracing a 120 km/h taxi ride through the streets of Hong Kong can be, especially when there are no fully functioning seat belts in the rear seat. But believe it or not, two of us actually fell asleep.
Not me, of course, I was holding onto the girls like the rapture was upon us. Also, fortunately for us the journey was bookended by the discovery that we’re stayingin THE most amazing hotel, on the 15th floor, harbor views. It is described as a ‘budget’ option in all the guidebooks – makes me wonder what would be called ritzy in this town.
It feels like we’re in heaven, perhaps even more so because of the hellish flight. Withoutgoing in to too many details, I thought at least 52 times, “I’ve had ENOUGH!” and then had to suck it up because it was my turn to walk Tess up and down the aisles. But don’t worry, I’m forgetting it already. Especially because I can hear the snuffles subsiding in the next room, two georgeous girls going to sleep on the pull out couch.
It’s 11pm, we’ll all be wrecks tomorrow, but wow, so glad we’re here.
NOTE: I’m writing this on my iPod, apologies for any spelling issues or typos.
