After 18 hours of travel, we are safely in Hong Kong at Lavern Plett's flat in the section known as Happy Valley. He lives in a two-room flat on the 19th floor.
We made all of our connections on time, and the flight was smooth. It was even relatively clear in Hong Kong as we arrived.
First impression: more Mercedes Benz per street than in West Plano. Every luxury car is on the streets, which are canyons between highrises everywhere.
Off to dinner with a family who are members of International Baptist Church. Will check in later.
