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.
