Hong Kong Hospitality

On Tynan

Man do we have a lot of catching up to do. This rapid fire traveling schedule doesn't leave us with all that much time to contemplate and write. If we aren't checking in somewhere, we're checking out and trying to catch a plane.

We were worried about where we'd stay in Hong Kong. It's a famously expensive city and we intended to be there for about ten days.

I always say, "Everything always works out perfectly," to which Todd always replies that it's dangerous to say that.

Cathay De-Escalates, Clears Marshall of Wrongdoing


I know everyone is getting bored of Cathay, and I'm trying to get back on interesting strategic content, philosophy, etc. But hey, I want to give credit where it's due - they've started to de-escalate and get reasonable.

Some facts here are wrong, and there's some omissions. But anyways, I appreciate this Joseph.

I filmed a video reply (that's friendly!) and I'll post it later. Really, it's entertaining.

Anyways, they're originally saying I caused a gigantic disturbance and was a huge problem, then I said I was going to bring tons of legal action against them (which, y'know, usually means they'd want to preserve their leverage by holding everything over my head that they can), and yet now they just filed no complaints, no charges, and cleared me to fly. That's interesting, isn't it?
