SHENZHEN, China (Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2004) - The U.S. players were pleasantly surprised to see the sun when they arrived in Hong Kong early Sunday morning, and we don’t mean Chinese star midfielder Sun Wen. As the team bus weaved its way around the picturesque harbor and inlets of Hong Kong on its way to Shenzhen, it was actually warm and sunny with blue skies reminiscent of their recent departure city of Los Angles. Those were weather conditions not previously encountered by the U.S. team on their three previous frigid January visits to China. Then it got cold as usual, but that didn't deter the WNT players as they have already had a number of adventures from riding a white pony to scouring for a local Starbucks.
