I flew back home last night into a resplendent and fairly empty Terminal Three. I'd only been gone for a week, and had a wonderful time traveling, but it was good to be back onto familiar ground.
Real relaxation came when I climbed into front passenger seat the taxicab. On the right hand side, just where it should be. The musty smell of cigarettes, the cold November wind coming in through the half-open windows, the twang of a Beijing accent as the cabby and I quickly went through most of the conversational Mandarin I knew.
Hong Kong, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Hong Kong, and then back to Mainland China. Each entry or debarkation (including the ferries between Hong Kong and Macau) requiring a customs sheet... a total of 12 stamps in my passport; three pages used.
I'm going to work more on this blog entry later, and do some back-filling as well. In the meantime, here are some of the photos I took over the last week:http://flickr.com/photos/robesoh/sets/72157608200746094/
