Hong Kong

The days are all blurred together because of the time change and the jet lag on this trip to Hong Kong and China.

Yesterday morning, which seemed like so long ago, I landed in Hong Kong. I haven’t been back since before the takeover in 1997. A lot has changed, obviously, but some parts are not much different. Much of the downtown layout is the same as when I remembered it. It’s good to see a lot of the relatives too, many of whom I haven’t seen for almost 20 years. I had a good time visiting, and there will be more of that.

Today, I crossed into China by bus. The immigration process took a very long time because they only had one line for “foreigners.” Now checked in to a hotel, I had dinner at this vegetarian restaurant, where they serve interesting things like vege-snails. I think I’ll go back tomorrow and try some other stuff.
