As I am navigating my way through each day, I keep thinking to myself the following thought :
“This is not for the faint of heart.”
If I did not have decades of International Travel behind me and under my figurative belt, I couldn’t be doing this.
I know Hong Kong to the point that when I get into the MTR system..
I just go on auto-pilot to the correct car to board in order to de-board at the proper place when I get to my destination wondering to myself .. “How did I just do that?”
Last night the Jet Lag finally caught up with me and really slammed me. I slept over 12-hours and did not feel all that good when I dragged myself up this morning.
I went to the Airport Express Station at 8am this morning and spoke with actual Mongolian Airline employees so I now have that zeroed-in for next Thursday the 20th. I think that I will do the Airport Express and NOT take a taxi out to the airport. I feel that strong and will have only three bags with me. One will be checked and two carried aboard (my backpack and my CPAP mini-suitcase).”
Tonight I am paying for two rooms. I took my big bag to my new room this noontime. Tomorrow I will then have my small suitcase, backpack and CPAP mini-suitcase. This saves me the rigors of checking out of the YMCA at 11am and having to wait for my new room until 3pm.
Shades of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
When I got to the Chungking Mansions and my new hostel they said they had no rooms. I paid in full yesterday for 7-night stay.
They then said I could pay HKG $250 and have a double room. My single is HKG $170. I said no. So they gave me a room on the 8th floor for my suitcase. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. Again I know them (Patti this is the place with the amazing corner room we stayed in) so I just stood my ground.
I can NOT stay more than 7-nights in a calendar month at the YMCA and my visit is longer than 7-days so I had to move.
Over and Out for now.
Much Joy .. Cap
