I wish I had more photos, but Rachel and I had just gotten back from Hong Kong and I was still pretty jet lagged.

Wrapping up this three part series (see part 1 and part 2), we also had the chance to spend a couple days in Macau, which is the other Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. The best part was probably riding on a Boeing 929. Never heard of it? It’s a passenger-carrying waterjet-propelled hydrofoil designed and built by Boeing in the mid 1970’s — go figure.
We were in Hong Kong to attend the wedding for Rachel’s brother, Mark. I’m not sure going to a single wedding in Hong Kong allows me to extrapolate fully, but from what I gleaned most weddings are very similar to this: suits tailored the week before, shoes for the bridesmaids custom made in two days, and a full day of pomp and circumstance with both Western and Chinese tradition.
In 12 hours, I will be on a plane back to Seattle. In 24 hours, I will still be on that plane. I will land three hours before I took off.
