The Long Way
With Hong Kong being one of China's two "special administrative regions", flights there are charged at international rather than domestic rates. Accordingly, Lindsay had the idea of travelling to Shenzhen – the city just north of HK – and just walking across the border. What this meant in practice was the single most arduous leg of our journey thus far. To wit: a flight from Shanghai to Shenzhen; a 2-hour airport bus to Luohu Port; an hour in the foreigners line at customs; a short trip on the Kowloon-Canton Railway; and – finally – a transfer to the HK metro system. Success! And it only took about a day. Oh, the things we do for a bargain. (Hong Kong, 2010)
Welcome to Delhi
I’m in Delhi now. After my 5-hour flight from Hong Kong, I meekly poked my head out of the Delhi airport terminal into the waiting lounge, where I eschewed the tourist officer’s $20-$30 hotel suggestions and instead reserved a fairly cheap $12 single A/C room for myself in the heart of a Delhi market. Then I headed to the taxi stand and purchased my fare. After a bit of drama and searching, I had a room and I headed out to the streets to look around. This is a tuk-tuk, or “auto-rickshaw.” They are about the size of golf carts but as fast as a really fast go-kart. They’ll take you anywhere for pretty cheap, if you bargain. Plus, you can’t beat the scenery.
