JAN 30, 13 .. I AM SAFELY INTO HONG KONG ..

Wednesday Evening The 30th of January 2013 .. 9:49PM ..


I am only one .. But Still .. I AM ONE ..

I cannot do everything .. But Still .. I CAN DO SOMETHING ..

And because I cannot do everything ..

I WILL NOT REFUSE TO DO THE SOMETHING I CAN ..

Edward Everett Hale ..

Those wonderful words get me UN-stuck when I AM stuck !

Too much to say and where to begin ..

YESTERDAY .. Monday and Tuesday .. January 28th and 29th ..

THE FLIGHT(S) HERE ..

Getting out of Detroit, Michigan..  we were blessed with a snow and ice 'storm-from-hell' .. Danny 48073 picked me up at 4:30AM and we were off .. I boarded the flight to Chicago 'just a tad late' .. we all sat and we sat .. then we all DE-BOARDED the flight to Chicago .. back inside the terminal we all sat and sat .. then we all RE-BOARDED another aircraft at another departure gate .. en route to take-off we had to stop and get the aircraft 'de-iced' .. then we  flew to Chicago .. arriving about two hours late ..

It took me one-good-hour to get from Chicago O'Hare Domestic Terminal 2 to O'Hare International Terminal 5 but get there I did ..

THEN THINGS WENT FROM CHALLENGING (Yes 'Zilla? Re-read the above 'Zilla.. ) TO THE ULTIMATE FLIGHT EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER IN MY ENTIRE LIFE EXPERIENCED ..

In spite of being several hours late into Chicago O'Hare .. I was so early to the Cathay Pacific Airlines Check-In-Desk in Terminal 5 that no Cathay Pacific staffers were on duty yet !

So I waited about half-an-hour and checked in ..

"Sir .. you are in Business Class Sir .. Please go to our Cathay Pacific Lounge before boarding Sir !"

International Security is tough .. but I made it through ..

And then HOO-BOY the trip was off-and-running ..

Into the Cathay Pacific Lounge I went and what did I see ?

A FULL BUFFET .. Lemon Chicken .. Bow-Tie-Pasta with Cheese Sauce .. String Beans with Slivered Almonds and Onions .. Wonderful Roasted Potato Quarters .. Greek Salad .. Fresh Fruit .. and more .. every liquid you could imagine and all you wanted .. Beer and Wine .. and Gatorade and every possible soda pop ever made .. Water too .. and some desserts too !

Arrrrggggggg .. ten plates of food and one hour later I was stuffed beyond-the-beyond ..

We boarded .. we took off on time .. we leveled off .. the Captain turned off the seat belt sign .. I reclined my bed in Business Class and SLEPT FOR OVER FIVE (5) HOURS .. I awoke .. burped .. refused the gourmet dinner .. well I took the Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream ! .. and SLEPT ANOTHER FOUR (4) or so hours ..

Hot dog .. because I'd slept for Nine (9) Hours .. I had ONLY Six and one Half Hours (6-1/2) more to fly !

We landed in Hong Kong on time .. 7:35PM local time on Tuesday the 29th of January ..

It took the usual two hours to pass through Immigration and get my baggage and pass through customs and then get the train to Hong Kong .. then get the bus to the YMCA at 41 Salisbury Road in Kowloon in Tsimshatsui ..

Then I 'crashed' in my room AFTER riding the Star Ferry over to Hong Kong Island and back and getting two gallons of bottled water to drink and bathe with and getting international telephone calling cards .. and making some telephone calls and (?) I keep myself busy ! I hit-the-sack after mid-night !

WEDNESDAY the 30th of January ..

So what did I do all day today .. Wednesday the 30th ? .. I got up and made some more phone calls and ate SINGAPORE RICE NOODLE FOR BREAKFAST at 9:45AM ..

After my breakfast of SINGAPORE RICE NOODLE .. I went back to my dorm room at the YMCA and ? ..

I lay down at 10:30AM this morning to 'refresh and take a short nap' ..

I SLEPT LIKE THE DEAD FOR SEVEN AND ONE HALF HOURS (7 1/2) ..

I staggered awake at 6PM ..

So what to do ?  THAT is a no-brainer .. go have a dinner of SINGAPORE RICE NOODLE .. ride the Star Ferry to Hong Kong Island and return to Kowloon AFTER exploring the Hong Kong 'Central District' ..

And ? 

Write and Post this !  Oh my I do hope it makes some sense and there are not too many 'typos' and errors in thinking .. to be honest .. I still feel sort of 'fuzzy' from the trip over here .. and from sleeping far too long than was healthy !

With that I will sign-off .. 

THRILLED-BEYOND-BELIEF AT BEING IN HONG KONG IN CHINA !!

If the Good Lord 'takes me during my sleep tonight' I will .. 

'CHECK-OUT ONE HAPPY-CAMPER !!


Much Love from Bobba and from all of the Travelling Bobbseys here on-the-road again with me !!    Cap ..
