Hong KongPosted: July 1, 2011
I’m finally here!
Well I actually got here a little over 24 hours ago, but i was pretty much delirious all of yesterday. I got in around 6am Friday, which is 5pm Thursday back home, and knew that I needed to stay awake the rest of the day if I didn’t want to have major jet lag.
First things first, I unpacked.
I managed to bring all of these with me in my suitcase! Most of these foods are about double the price here. The ezekiel bread is about 8-9 US dollars a loaf.
Then I headed down to the pool.
It was actually a little cold so I ended up in the indoor pool, where a swam a couple laps, deemed it too hot and headed to the steam room, where it was even hotter. I’m just so logical aren’t I?
15 mins later I showered off and it was still only 11am.
So I headed downstairs for some lunch from my favorite organic/natural grocers here…Three Sixty. After debating between ordering sandwiches, hamburgers, noodles, or gelato, my sister and I ended up with sushi.
Since Hong Kong is an island, they always have super fresh sushi here.
The rest of the day was pretty much a blur. We took the subway to my grandparents house after lunch for another lunch. I ended up drinking a bowl of vegetable soup and passing out on the couch. (So much for staying awake, yeah?) I didn’t sleep for too long, at least I don’t think I did, but eventually we went home. I didn’t really do anything too interesting yesterday and I forgot to bring my camera with me so I have no pictures.
It’s been raining here for days apparently, but we’ve been lucky and it’s cleared up a bit since we got here.
I took this photo yesterday morning.
I’m looking at the same view right now and it’s still cloudy today, but the visibility is a little better. I can see the mountains behind the mountains.
Look at all those boats!
We’re about to head out for some dim sum with my family here. Have a great weekend!
