Heading to Hong Kong

Heading to Hong Kong

Up at 5:30am this morning.  Out the door at 6:00 to Haneda Airport heading to Hong Kong.  I love that I can get fly out of Haneda vs. Nartia as it saves a tremendous amount of time. 今朝5:30におきました。 6:00にはねだへ行きました。 はねだすきです。べんりだとおもいます。

Today’s Configuration: Leica M9 with a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 with ND4 with a 1.4x magnifier.

At least I have a Gold Card so I can get fast check-ins...   I have travel so much over the years my current United Frequent Flyer balance is 805,194 miles.    This year I flew 29,658 miles.  It will be nice when I have a year I don't make airline status.    I have trips already schedule later this year in July/August to Bangalore, Sydney, Seoul, Singapore and Beijing.  I am sure I will have others as well so this won't be the year I don't make it...

8がつにたくさん出張があります。

It makes me wonder what people are bringing on the plane with them.  Of all of the things you could list...pickles?    Really?

I always love to stop in and look at the Rolex's.   I love these watches.  I have had a few over the years.  I am currently wearing the Rolex Milgauss (black face, clear crystal).    I love the retro look of this watch.    A lot of Rolex's have special purposes.    This watch is designed as an antimagnetic watch so if I ever get stuck in an electromagnetic field with the rest of you, I will be the only one who knows what time it is.

ローレックスのみせです。ローレックスはかっこいいとけいです。
