Baggage carousels, in the arrivals section of the brand-spanking new Zhengzhou 
International airport terminal. Monday night, May 2, as we flew back from Tokyo.

We must have walked a good quarter mile past empty gates from our gate to passport control. Why couldn't we have docked at a closer gate? How else would we see the whole airport. If you only use a small part of the terminal (say, the gate next to passport control), then that proves what a waste of money it was to build the whole airport. This way, we got to use all of it.

And that's what it looks like. Note the lack of planes.
