On my way to Prague

I’m in the Hong Kong airport on the way from Auckland to Prague. I have about 22 more hours to go before I arrive at my hotel. It is great spending a year in New Zealand, but it is definitely a long way from anywhere!

Hong Kong airport is beautiful and incredibly well organized. I compare this to the alternative routing through Los Angeles, and there is absolutely no comparison. LAX is chaotic, rude, and very difficult (in my admittedly limited experience). Here, transferring flights involved no formalities at all: just a quick security check and into the departure areas, absolutely full of shopping, lounges, bars and restaurants.

I am on my way to the EURO conference. It is too bad this conference conflicts with the INFORMS “International” in Puerto Rico. Both are conferences I would like to attend. But the IFORS executive is meeting in Prague, so that is where I am going. I’ll try to provide an update or two along the way.
