USA / Hong Kong Summer 2017

Summer vacation time! The idea was to go to the US for about two weeks to see friends and family in the midwest (Wisconsin / Minnesota / Iowa), and pick up Piper, who was canoeing and backpacking in the Boundary Waters. Then we went to Oregon to see my family. As it turns out, once you're on the west coast, it's roughly equidistant to return to India by heading west rather than east... so we actually did an around-the-world trip, crossing the date line like Phileas Fogg (albeit in reverse). Cool! Hong Kong was on the way, so we stopped there for a couple of days before landing back in Mumbai.
