The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region

The first thing you must know is that I’m writing this in short sleeves….with a window open.

The next thing you must know is that Hong Kong is really an amazing place. It is an assault on the senses. The only place I’ve been which is comparable to this is Manhattan. Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei are large cities, but they aren’t as dense as Hong Kong. Hong Kong is vertical. You get that same walking-in-a-canyon feeling you get in New York. You can smell food everywhere. You see laundry hanging out of almost every window of every high rise apartment.

I’m off to Starbucks with my laptop to catch up on writing and processing all my photos from Korea. My visa for HK is for 90 days, so there is no obvious rush to leave. I’m going to try and get caught up on all my photos and writing before I leave Hong Kong/Macau. I’m also going to try and find some sandals (mine broke in Japan) so I don’t have to keep wearing socks when I’m in Borneo.

I will also do my best to avoid the bird flu while I’m here.
