My last American meal.
And so, 11 a.m. EST, the journey began:
Sustenance for the harrowing journey.
And then, like a great epic, we had to pass through three gates.
We passed the gate keepers with nary a problem.
Heck yeah! Window seat!
The third gate was the most worrisome. Did our bags make it? Would we make it? So close and so much could go wrong!
But all the worry was for not as our bags and us made it in one piece.
Our hotel was a welcome site after 12+ hours of traveling in very uncomfortable airplane seats.

The traveling was one of the more testing things I've ever done. It was the excitement of going to a country and continent I have never been before that made it bearable. I'll hopefully get to come back and do a full entry on my first day in Hong Kong (not just pictures with captions). Until then, I'll be roaming!
