13 hour layover in Hong Kong!
People were lined up for a free Kotex sample and cotton candy shaped like the Kotex bear! Men and women. Strange.
The tents and boxes are all women gathered for "day of rest" or "day of" for short. Doesn't seem that strange for a Sunday until you see them lined along the sidewalks and flooded in the parks, sitting in their cardboard box fortresses!

After a few hours of sleep on our 16 hour flight, we made our way back to the "general store" at the back of the plane (as one of the attendants called it) and struck up a conversation with the crew. We told them we were on our honeymoon and one of the ladies said, "well then, you need some champagne! " Seeing as how we were flying coach using our airline miles, this was not a luxury that was normally afforded to our section. But wouldn't you know it, one of our new friends soon returned with a bottle of bubbles and a first class Cole Hann travel kit as a gift!! We then proceeded to spend the next half hour in the back of the plane with the flight attendants drinking our cold bubbly, with a new glass being poured for us when it became empty. What a way to kick off the honeymoon!!
Oh yeah, and we got hooked up with about 30 airplane bottles of Titos and other fine libations courtesy of our new airline friends! We didnt even ask for them, but weren't too upset when our bag got filled ;)
