Hongkong Review

Being on the way back I have some time before the next wave of Chinese impressions hits me and I can reflect on a wonderful weekend in the south of china. Actually most of the time has been spent in hongkong (which is not china!) and featured us with a mix of world Capitol and relaxed multicultural way of living. Having spend their four days we experienced a surprisingly calm city who impressed us with it’s clean appearance (one thing you’ll rarely find in Chinese cities) and a nearly hundred percent english speaking population.

Highlights have been the traditional double story trams (I have no clue how the actually hold upright consideringtheirageandbuild), the festivities for the mid autumn festival (the reason why this holiday could be extended to Monday ..), a tour with the humangous cable car and just the best sea food we had so far in china.

In order to skip the usual tourist gifts we decided to provide ourselves with three custom fit suits that we cherished quite a lot and will which continue to go on our way through china.

Honkong has been a blessing and my biggest fear going back right now is only the cold that awaits me in Shenyang. Still I look forward to staying home for the next weekend. After four weeks of straight work and traveling it will be good to have a rest for a short while. Stay safe and tuned for the next adventures to come!
