Sunday 10th March 1985
4.30 am. lights on and activity as several large tour groups turn up for the flight. Long delays checking in as computer not working. Spend last rupiahs in airport, cup of coffee - 700! Change planes at Jakarta for a 747 and have five seats to myself. Good laugh at “The Woman in Red” movie. shave and change shirt. Hong Kong customs men all look like British policemen except wearing shorts and Chinese faces.
 Met by Deborah. It’s cold. Hong Kong has a very exciting airport, sea on both sides of the runway, and an approach run between the skyscrapers with large cargo boats and international liners steaming besides the runway. Roast lamb dinner with parsnips and bread and butter pudding. Bliss.
