Don't We Want to Go the Other Way?
Sometimes, reality surpasses even the most gifted author's attempt at fiction. For me, the Globerider's tour starts and ends in Seattle, WA - a WESTBOUND circumnavigation of the globe by plane, bus, and motorcycle (the latter of course, predicated on our passing our Chinese driver's license test, otherwise, it will be a journey by plane, bus, and ... foot!).
Today, we flew from Narita, Japan on Japan Airlines flight no. 733, bound for Hong Kong. From Hong Kong, we took a bus to Shenzhen, China. Imagine how bemused I was to discover the name of the bus line servicing this route - their ticket counter sign is shown below - I'm not making this up:
[I really hope they have bathrooms on their buses....]
I can only hope they don't own a hotel chain - could you imagine checking into the "Eternal Rest Hotel"?
