Here’s a little blurry photo of Hong Kong Island taken from Kowloon. Even though it was pretty hazy our entire time there, I think it makes the skyline here look pretty cool. They had a light show around 9 p.m. that lit up the buildings with fireworks.
I got back from the trip on Tuesday night. It was just what I needed!!! It was interesting being in such an international city with a really pan-Asian feel to it. We mainly did four things in Hong Kong:
1) Great conversations
Actually, my favorite part of the trip was probably just hanging out on the Maryknoll balcony chatting away with K., N., H., & N. about everything from Friends episodes to racial identity. Even though I paid for sitting outside with a nice collection of mosquito bites that I didn’t discover until I was back in Seoul. 🙂 It was worth it, though!!
Anyway, thanks to K. & N. for being fantastic tour guides and equally fantastic company!! I’ll try wheatgrass one of these days . . . 🙂 And you guys always have a place to stay in Seattle, where I can play tour guide.
I’m currently in the process of trying to figure out how to upload a large batch of photos onto my Flickr site (love Flickr–love it!!), so that’s how I’m going to direct everyone to my photos instead of Shutterfly from now on. So once I figure that out, you’ll be able to view my few Hong Kong photos that weren’t totally blurry from my piece o’ shit Olympus.
So Hong Kong was a nice break from work and from Korea in general. Good food (Indian, Thai, mangos, mmmmmm), good people, what more could a girl ask for??
