Farewell dinner and then...

Brock saved the best for last (in terms of food). He had scouted out a really fancy hotel with French influence and a Burmese chef.

The tasting menu gave us ample portions of fish cakes, shrimp lemongrass salad, beef curry, chicken satay (sauté?), shredded pork, and a beautiful fruit salad with ice cream for dessert. We had wine with dinner, a first on this trip. It was all over too soon. And then we were taking a red truck taxi back to the Parasol Hotel.

It was an early morning as we got up at the crack of dawn for our flight to Bangkok. It was when we got to Bangkok and our flight to Hong Kong was delayed that we knew we were in trouble. We arrived in HK just as our flight was leaving. So Cathay Pacific gave us a hotel room and vouchers for a delightful dinner at Cafe Aficionado.

The downside to this little glitch is the fact that I will now get home 17 hours after I would have otherwise. That part sucks!

At least the airline treated you well.
