Hong Kong postcard

[From April 2008.]

Our destination is Dali, China but the flights are wonky so we arrived before midnight with our departing flight leaving a day an half later, affording some time to kill. Built up bikes, five hour ride, an impromptu nap, delicious noodles at a fishing village later. We made our way back to the airport, bathed up in a freezing waterhole under the deafening  approach vectors, spent another night (horsed around riding IN the airport ’till security put an end to that) then did a short ride the next morning finally broke down bikes, on a plane to Chengdu.
