Going Home part 1

Ryan and I are going home! – temporarily at least. We’re taking our first trip back to Minneapolis since we came to Hong Kong. I can’t believe we waited so long. I thought we’d go back to visit all the time, but it just didn’t work out that way.

His parents have invited us to stay at their house, so we’ll save a small fortune on hotels. Not that hotels in Minneapolis are at all expensive compared to Hong Kong. Now we just have to find a good deal on plane tickets. You can go everywhere from Hong Kong airport – everywhere except wherever we want to go. We had the same problem when we went to Rome last year. The closest flights go to Chicago and Detroit. When we came here over a year ago we went through Detroit. The whole trip took over 20 hours!

I’m looking forward to all the things I’ve missed since I’ve been in Hong Kong – mostly the people and food. I can’t wait to see old friends and eat fresh produce. The fruit in Hong Kong is really not the best. It will be strange to walk down a sidewalk without a thousand other people or go into a grocery store larger than a closet. I think the strangest part will be no Chinese signs anywhere and not a single duck hanging in a window.
