The flight path actually took us north of Sendai over the northern tip of the main island Honshu (north of it is Hokkaido island; the other two big ones are Shikoku and Kyushu). We arrived on time in Seoul. That’s a shot of Incheon International airport with Korean Air planes, late Thu afternoon. I checked my location on the Google Latitude map on my phone just for fun. The map detail for North Korea is completely blank – not surprisingly so, I guess.
The flight to Hong Kong was another 3 1/2 hrs. We arrived on time but there was a delay with the baggage, and then a long line at the Hong Kong exit crossing and a luggage inspection for me at the China Mainland entrance crossing. So it was 1 am by the time Mr Wu stopped with me at the apartment in Dameisha.
