Friday/ at the Sky City

The week went by in a flash, and I am on the way home to Seattle.  I sent a last urgent e-mail when everyone was boarding the bus for Dameisha.  From there we had a van take us through the border.  Right now I am in the Marriott Sky City hotel by Hong Kong airport for my flight out in the morning. The first three pictures are from Shenzhen and the two bridge pictures from Hong Kong on the way to Lantau island where the airport is.

Billboard with dragons on the way to Shenzhen. I don't know what it says !
Shenzhen freeway on the way to the border. All the red New Year's lanterns have by now been taken down from the lamp posts.
Another billboard in Shenzhen.
This is the first of the two bridges that make up the Lantau Link to the island with the airport, Ting Kau Bridge. It is a 1177-metre long cable-stayed bridge.
.. then the road goes onto the Tsing Ma Bridge. It is the world's seventh-longest span suspension bridge, with a deck for traffic and another for rail. The bridge has a main span of 1,377 metres (4,518 ft) and a height of 206 metres (676 ft).
