Hong Kong is very exciting---mainly because it is a city and everything is new to me. I like that there is still greenery here, along with all the cement. However, I am in the new territories, not the island. I hear the island is a little more crowded and less green. Cars drive on the left, which is a completely new and unexpected phenomenon for me.
All in all, HK is very much English friendly. Most people speak English, I was pleased to find out. Also, most signs have English translations. Very helpful.
I also have some bad news: I found out today that I probably won't have access to my blogspot once we enter mainland China. Obviously, this devastated me. I really want to record my experiences this semester. Therefore, I hope to make a travel blog on a website that is allowed in China. The exact URL is yet to be determined. I'll ask around and see what I find.
A sample of my life here:
|The room I'm staying in.|
|A sweet looking statue from across the water.|
|The "living area"|
More pictures coming! It just takes forever to load them and so I became impatient.
I'm off to bed!
