Connecting in Hong Kong

Hong Kong airport is a great one, as are many Asian airports. They put US Airports to shame. The security is actually nice to you there, and you don't get all the attitude of the TSA. The TSA looks so important with their little uniforms. I think they are just silly... but it is remarkable how people react to uniforms.


I was going to find a pic of the silly uniforms so we could all make fun of them, but then I found out that the TSA has a blog! How boring. It makes me real happy that my tax money is going for the TSA's social media operation. Look at this TSA blog entry on the Fourth of July and the YouTube videos they provided (especially the charmer about the dangerous "Sparkler"). Don't worry everyone, the US Government is now blogging for you.

  • Jim Mucklin 6y

    Every time I think your at the top of your game, you go ahead an create another masterpiece, the highlight to shadow in the roof smacked me in the face. The plane out side and the balcony on the right just make the photo.

    i shouldn't even mention security in our vancouver airport - the whole tazer incident is still a big issue here.

    do you remember the old airport in hong kong - that was a crazy place to fly in to...........felt like you were landing in a residential area.

    nice shot (as usual)

    Hey Trey,

    Just to draw your attention to

    No accreditation whatsoever. This site has also been hijacking a lot of other pictures from flickr members.

    It is an amazing place...myself I was far to worried about walking the many miles to find my connection..(not enough time to take too many pictures.)..a task not made easier by my lack of Chinese language skills. NIce that you made time to get an excellent shot !
