DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: I had the opportunity to visit the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2019. The World Solar Challenge is a car race of vehicles mainly powered by photovoltaics. The race always starts in Darwin/Australia in the Northern Territory and leads from north to south through the whole continent from Australia to Adelaide in the south. The route is about 3000 km through the harsh conditions of the continent. The teams consist mainly of students and the vehicles are built and operated by students. In this film there are some impressions of the qualifing on the Darwin race track, the scruitining and the start in the centre of Darwin. Unfortunately I was a bit late for the start and could only see the last two cars starting.
Taxiing at Frankfurt Airport FRA with Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong HKG at the end of September 2019. The flight departed 13.45 in the afternoon, as usual from Terminal 2.
This is a short taxi drive from the Victoria Peak in Hong Kong in April 2019 to the train Central Station. I had a short stopover of 6 hours on my flight from Sydney to Frankfurt and took the Airport Express to Hong Kong Central Station. After the usual maze I took a taxi to Victoria Peak. There I did a small hike in the early morning and then the way back by taxi. The taxi ride cost about 80 Hong Kong dollars in 2019.
