Back in Saigon

The front desk phoned my room at midnight to inform me that I would be on a 6:00 a.m. bus back to the Taoyuan Airport. The 24-hour stopover in Taipei really broke the long trip up nicely after the 14 hour flight from Los Angeles. From here on it would be a cakewalk. Escorted through immigration, we reached the China Airlines information counter where our passports were returned along with new boarding passes. Mine was for a 7:30 departure to Saigon with a connection that would put me into Phnom Penh around one in the afternoon. Boarding went surprisingly smooth, though the actual departure was about an hour late. But that, too, was greatly appreciated, allowing time for a quick breakfast.
The China Airlines flight took three hours .
