Some of us went down to the local market to buy our last few things, and to pass the time, but soon we were in the foyer with all our suitcases. Shirley, our guide from the Great Wall hike met us there with the bus and we piled on all our suitcases and ourselves. The drive to the airport was about an hour long but we were there soon enough.
We checked-in pretty quickly, and were wondering where everyone else was. We had to go through security and immigration which takes forever. It took us an hour in total from check-in to sitting in our gate. We had timed ourselves going through, and ended up only having an hour to spare in the gate. We ordered pizza for lunch, even though it was already 3pm, but we had to wait 30mins to get it. By the time that Dad came back with it, people were already boarding, so we had to eat quickly.
The way that the seats on the plane meant that nobody was sitting with eachother, but Liam and Aunty Robynne. We didn;t have our own tv screens, which meant that we all had to watch the same movie, but all in all it wasn't too bad.
We arrived in Hong Kong and got to our next gate. We had a 3 hour wait in transit.
