Up early, 4.30am to Auck airport for flight to Hong Kong. Long flight, 12 hours. Wee bit of turbulance out of Auckland but not too bad which is something coming from me. Plenty of leg room, empty seat between Tony & me so could spread out a bit. Lots of movies, TV programmes, documentarys etc on own TV set. Good food but didnt eat as wasnt feeling too good.
Hong Kong fine & sunny but very weak sun due to polution. Had to take 2 1/2 minute train ride from arrivals to departures, shows size of airport.
Could see forrests of apartment buildings from airport, they have their own supermarket & movie theatres so people dont even have to leave their building if they dont want to. Must be dreadful air on top floors although they would have filters on their airconditioners I imagine.
