Very difficult to say with certainty (because of all the changes in time + intl. dateline), but I think we spent about 30 hours in the air or in airports. Slept about 3 hours the entire time.

Got into HK yesterday (Friday) Chungking has too many touts & kind of angry looking young men from Africa & Middle East all over the place. Hey Leslie, found one of the Everly Brothers! David got pic. Arcade at Chungking is much better than before.

Found guesthouse in Mirador Mansion - staying at Cosmic GH. 3 beds in a tiny room. Bathroom is about 3x4 feet with commode & sink & shower all in the same place. Will send pic later. Cost is $220 HK (about $30 US). Hit the streets & right off found great place to eat - Macau Restaurant. Had curry chicken & Macau-style pork & rice. Excellent. Coffee iced was very good & strong.

Jeff & hiked way up Nathan Road to market area in the rain. Felt good for awhile; then just felt wet. Got back to GH about 7:30, had a mediocre dinner, went back & passed out. Woke at 0500. Yikes! But much refreshed. Breakfast was fast food dim sum (Chui Chau roll, bun, coke) & off we went to the peak - man in coffee shop where I am now putting the mal do ojo on me for taking too long on this computer.

Remember, when you travel with Tabasco, you always travel 1st class.
