I took a bus from bus operator China Transportation Services to Hong Kong. We changed from a 16 seater minibus into a full-size coach bus at the newly renovated (for the Universiade Games) Huanggang border crossing. I was a little annoyed by this sticker – stuck on my shirt when we left by the ticket lady without my permission – but believe me, it certainly saved me from being stranded at the border crossing (there are no trains, and no taxis). I was waiting for the minibus for 30 mins+ outside in sweltering heat when a little guy ran up to me and shooed me onto the big bus. And here I am in the Marriott Courtyard, my comfy and customary hotel on Hong Kong island (view from the room I have on the 25th floor on Sat morning).
