So, yesterday we had our 15 hour flight to Hong Kong. I won’t go into much detail, because Porter is doing a post on that, but afterwards I was feeling blah. The flight would not have felt as long if I could watch Gilmore Girls, but alas, no. Hong Kong is very warm. In other words, the complete opposite of Bellingham. We had to fill out this paper thing, and mom and dad kept messing up, so we were there for forever. My backpack was really heavy, and I was feeling pretty miserable. As you can see in that picture of Porter and I in front of the Christmas trees in the airport mall that my dad posted. Finally, we left the airport and took a shuttle to our hotel. It was really nice, and the beds were super comfortable.
This morning we got up early (you don’t know how early we had to get up for the long flight) and headed for the airport, but I won’t bore you with details about how we checked in our bags, and went through security. We went to the part of the airport that’s a mall. So there you go Ana, I’ve been to a mall in Hong Kong. That’s what the picture is. To everybody who is really confused right now: going to a mall in Hong Kong is an inside joke between Ana Zurcher and I. I know, seems weird, but that’s why it’s called an inside joke.
Right now, I’m on the flight to Bali. (The one we got up for this morning.) The view out the window is amazing. The clouds are moving over mountains, and it’s one of my favorite parts about the plane rides. I am really excited to get to Bali, because we get to stay in one place for a long time, and won’t have to take a plane for a while. I also get to see Maya!
Getting to Bali is amazing. The airport is really architecturally cool. A nice man named Koman picked us up and drove us to the house. It was so cool! The steering wheel is on the right side here, and there are no lanes on the road. It’s total freestyle. It’s also dangerous. The house is amazing, and really beautiful. Monkeys can come in and steal our stuff, so we have to put everything in cupboards and not leave anything out unless we are using it just then. It’s very hot here, but also really beautiful and amazing. We haven’t seen much animals except for some geckos and lots of bugs.
