It’s 6.30am and I’m at Copenhagen airport awaiting my connecting flight to London, having had no problem leaving troubled Hong Kong. As soon as my phone picked up a signal, it was deluged with pop-up notifications from the South China Morning Post and other sources that have been such a feature of our time in Hong Kong, all telling a story of escalating problems overnight:
Trying to stay calm, I checked on Susie’s progress (she was leaving HK at 9am Sunday), and was relieved to see that they got away safely too, although with much tighter security than we had just a few hours earlier.
As I left the hotel at 7pm, the next wave of AB examiners were just having a drink together to mark the start of their visit. I’m sure we all wish them well in the coming weeks, and that they can safely steer clear of difficulties, and wish the same for any friends and relations we all may have that are there for work.
Thanks to those of you who were concerned for both of our journeys this evening, and for the rest of our large, fragmented group. It’s been an extraordinary month, and doesn’t look like settling down anytime soon.
With love from Benx
