Monday night/ back to Hong Kong

Almost there .. about one more hour of the 7h 45m flight to go to get to Hong Kong.
A picture from our approach into Hong Kong airport.   Another year had gone, and I see the world’s longest bridge, the HongKong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will now only be completed by Dec 2017 – at the earliest.  This is one of the man-made islands.  The white rectangle in the middle of the island is where the ‘bridge’ actually becomes a tunnel (see next picture).
The three cities that the HongKong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge connect with one another.  The bridge is actually a bridge-tunnel-bridge combination, so that large ships can cross it.
Here’s the inside of an almost-empty Hong Kong metro train car. (At the end of the Island Line, on my way to the hotel). The cars have open gangways, so you can see all the way to the front as it snakes through its tunnel.

On Monday night I started to make my way back to Seattle, but with stay-overs in Hong Kong and in Tokyo.   Our flight out of Perth departed at midnight and brought us into Hong Kong by 7.45 am on Tuesday morning.
