Down South: Hong Kong and Macau

After living in the heart of China, it was almost a shock to be in a thriving metropolis like Hong Kong. In many ways it was so much like New York that we felt quite at home. We took to the subway (MTR) like fish to the water, and used it to travel all around Kowloon. We also took the ferry around on a 2hr trip to Macau.

Our host in Hong Kong was an amazing woman from Singapore, teaching in the anthropology department at the Chinese University. Her home is beautiful and large, a great luxury in Hong Kong. And she was the most gracious host. Saroja if you are reading this, you are welcome to come stay with Lester and I anywhere on the globe, anytime. Just send an email and our house is your house.
