I was drowsy and cranky when I arrived in Hong Kong.
Swiss Airlines clearly had an amazing sense of humour when they decided to put me in the middle seat between what seemed to be two rugby players.
As we landed at Chek Lap Kok airport, the last thing I had in mind was allowing myself to stay within the confines of its walls.
I had time. Only 4 hours till my connecting flight back to Sydney, but I still had time.
I quickly jumped on the airport train link and within 15 minutes I was in the middle of Hong Kong.
This gave me about an hour to have dinner with Josh.
He had only move to HK recently and was keen to give me a tour of his new apartment.
I cleared customs and passport control and was soon back in an uncomfortable seat, heading back to home and the feeling of dread that comes with knowing that work is about to start.
