My first week in Hong Kong has been filled with moving into my new apartment, training nine hours a day, and adjusting to life in this hectic international city. To say that my blog has been heavy on my mind would be a bit of a lie, but now that I have conquered the MTR, know how to say “Thank you” in Cantonese, and have eaten durian, I feel that I am finally ready to get some blogging underway!
I have a number of posts coming down the pipeline, but until those hit the interwebs please wet your appetite with some photos that I have taken over the past week and read the corresponding stories.
These are of my neighborhood city, Tseun Wan.
The view out my bedroom window.
The Hong Kong skyline is something to behold.
The star ferry is a great (budget) way to see said skyline.
The Chinese take their dessert very seriously: Chocolate waffles & ice cream.Sushi on the first night. Fish eggs, anyone?
I have waited years (YEARS) to try durian. Unfortunately, I wasn’t an instant fan. I’m counting on it being an acquired taste.
I hope you enjoyed this tiny taste into what is to come. Let me know in the comments what you’d like to see in future posts. Cheers!
