This week's Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes to you from the InterContinental Hong Kong. Peter's been going there since 1980, when the hotel first opened as the Regent. Later it became the Four Seasons, and it is now one of the crown jewels of the InterContinental chain. The hotel even has a Michelin star restaurant.
Joining him is Senior Editor for Time Hong Kong Liam Fitzpatrick, who is speaking about the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement and how it has changed the dynamic of one of the most vibrant cities in Asia. And The InterContinental’s Director of Engineering, Harvey Wong, talks about the hotel’s environmental initiatives, including beekeeping (and homemade honey) on the roof. All that and more on this episode of Travel Today with Peter Greenberg.

Hope you were able to watch last night's Castle episode, entitled "Hong Kong Hustle". It gave us a tiny glimpse into what kinds of things "Beckett" thinks about regarding her life, career and future with Castle... along with several of Castle's funny attempts to appease and even encourage his wife that she truly is THE BEST! Definitely a must-see episode in the 'Evolution of Caskett' and for every fan looking to the future for this beloved couple and for the entire Precinct Team. "Hong Kong Hustle" was directed by Jann Turner and written by Chad Creasey.
After the latest news, we'll open up the STR Round table for your thoughts on this episode. Hope you can join us, here are Elena's questions for tonght's discussion:

Molina: “Aquí en Hong Kong hay más afición por los caballos”
—Muy bien. Es verdad que es un país diferente al nuestro, pero el fútbol es fútbol en todos lados. El idioma es un obstáculo, pero por suerte me defiendo bien en inglés y cuento con un ayudante en el cuerpo técnico que habla español, inglés y chino.
—Estar lejos de casa en estas fechas siempre es duro…
—Pues sí. Por suerte me acompañó mi familia desde el principio. Los niños van al colegio americano, igual que en España, por lo que el salto para ellos no ha sido excesivo.
Jon, Jane and Bob lost some of their audience when they scheduled their show in American Samoan time zone. It was 90 minutes late. Jane highlights student bravery in Hong Kong and what stunts were used to prevent the protests from continuing (even though they are.) Bob disputes if the man who was going to jump in Hong Kong's city square was authentic. Jon's major topic this week was about Californians embracing every religion and value, being open to everything. The latter topic was Russa and social media and the effects of oil profits in Russia and economic distribution.
