We made it to Hong Kong around midnight Friday local time and 10 AM Friday Alabama time (about 28 hours). The time here is ahead by 14 hours, so if we get Lilly Monday morning this will actually be Sunday evening at home.

Catch you with a fever, and they will detain you for observation

We were the only people riding through Hong Kong at midnight in a cab with the trunk tied down because the luggage wouldn't fit! Actually, we were sharing with another couple who are here from Phenix City with the same mission - John and Meredith Curtis.
