TBM N850SJ in parking at Hong Kong. They said we couldn't leave from here. Out only guess is that the building behind us was causing the problem. Too bad nobody noticed the lack of jet engines on the back of the plane, or the fan on the front.

Lots of traffic out of Hong Kong. No surprise, we got a vector almost immediately. No SID for us.

Dinner was in the Richard Hennessy room (A HREF="http://www.culture.tw/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=914&Itemid=235">review) in Robins Grill at the Grand Formosa. This is Jeffrey's bone-in prime rib.

A very expensive bottle of Richard Hennessy congac. About US$2000. Yet another night when I should have brought the good camera to dinner. I soon started doing that.

The Richard Hennessy room; all black mirrors. Very classy. I honestly didn't notice that I was reflected in the picture. And, yes, that's a tee-shirt and shorts I'm wearing.
