Friday/ at Hong Kong airport

The black muffin from the Muji-To-Go store at the airport is a new item, said the display.  (Hmm, and what makes it black?). And this Qantas 747 was j- u- ust pulling up to the gate as I walked by .. most likely in from Down Under.  My travel advisory says the US-Korea Free Trade Agreement that took effect on Thu Mar 15 and prompted some street protests in Seoul – but at this point everything seems under control.   The accord will remove duties on almost two-thirds of American farm exports, and phase out tariffs on more than 95 percent of industrial and consumer exports within five years.  Tariffs will also be lifted on Korean car parts to the U.S.  — which should increase South Korean exports of the products.
