Our belated holiday weekend (the Qingming Festival or Tombsweeping Festival) has arrived. We are all very happy – double happy – to get a break from the grind on the project. The start-up went well, but it is always necessary to stick around for a few weeks to coach the new users and to work out any remaining wrinkles with the new system. So Sunday night finds me at my old haunt – the Marriott Courtyard – on Hong Kong Island. I took a coach bus from the Shatoujiao border crossing to Kowloon Tong station, and from there a taxi to the Marriott on the western side of Hong Kong Island.
