Day fourteen began very early, less than 5 hours of sleep, but I had been good about downing lots of water before bed so there was no hang-over. My stuff was already packed and after using the Skype phone a few more times, I checked out of the hotel, left my stuff at the front desk and headed to China. It was just as I imagined it and 8 hours of shopping later I made my way home, dropping my stuff off at Danny's office to be shipped home.
After that I went and grabbed my bags from the hotel and went to the Airport Express, this amazing thing they have in Hong Kong where you can check your bags up to 24 hours in advance in the city and get your boarding pass so that when you're ready to go you just take the bullet train to the airport and leave... god I wish we had that in the US. After that I met Danny, Jason and Alexis for a final dinner at this high-end Italian place. It was gonna be hard to say goodbye to these guys.
We went over to Beruit for a few drinks in my last hour, and finally I headed over to the train... my trip had come to and end.. I went to sleep on the plane, when I awoke, I was in London....
