How is Hong Kong these days, I haven't been there since 1994. How is it going since the transfer? I don't imagine the Chinese would be dumb enough to mess with it too much and chance wrecking the economy.
Never flew in (I went there several times in the Navy) but remember watching the planes coming in, looked like a wild ride! And IIRC, if they overshot the runway, they'd end up smack into some buildings?
As for where I want to live, I'm happy with living in Denial!
Seriously, Canada is nice, but obviously would be a summer place. Thailand is beautiful for the beach life. Overall I would probably say Hawaii, still part of the US but beautiful year round.
Ah, T.J. I have some nice fuzzy memories of that town! Just don't drink the water!
