Today- December 31 we have enjoyed the beautiful weather and the mountains, the Tolo Harbor and just relaxing and trying to get our bodies in gear for all of the changes. We are preparing to go out in a few minutes to get something to eat and ring in the new year here in Shatin. It is very difficult to get to the Hong Kong Island celebrations at this time. We will catch maybe some of the festivities.
We are here in Hong Kong! All of our travel went very, very well. No delays, all 8 checked-in-bags arrived with us. It was a long, long trip but the girls did outstanding. Many people said they could not believe how well they were doing on such a long flight. They are awesome! We enjoyed many meals on the plane and the girls had fun playing games on the touch screen computer in their seat. They never once asked if "we were almost there"......it was truly a great 15.5 hour flight starting December 29. Jack and I slept on and off as well.
Our arrival at the Hong Kong airport was a smooth one. We gathered all our luggage and hired two taxis to get us to our apartment living- in Shatin.
Flight from DTW to Hong Kong 15.5 hours!

We witnessed the world record breaking Dragon and Drum Parade on January 1 - in Tsim Sha Tsui. It was awesome!
All in all, we are so thankful to our Lord for such safe travel, and good health. Our colds are now fading away....we are feeling good. It is a beautiful place and we will share photos and much more.
