Hong Kong!

Hello, all! So as I, Annie, mentioned last entry, I'm going to be a correspondent in Hong Kong this semester. I have arrived! It's my second day here: I've so far gone through a ton of Hong Kong, and it's pretty great. I love the in-your-face buildings that are always 20+ floors high, kind of like a taller New York. But I also love the green mountains that are always in the background, a reminder that amongst all the busy urban life, there's also a need to remember the smaller things in life, the natural things that, while so obvious sometimes, need to be remembered. And of course, there are many more things, but that would take a long time to explain.

Anyways, I am very interested in all the things I'll be doing here, and, more importantly, how I can relate it back to things that I know, including American things. Amongst all the stores and businesses stacked amongst one another are McDonalds, Burger Kings, KFCs, and a sea of people that, as my cousin on my dad's side put it, really like wearing clothes with English words, no matter what they say (you'll see like KCIMEY SOUME shirts and KNIE shoes back in China, for example. Interesting). And very different lifestyles, philosophies on things that I've already seen. And college life at the University of Hong Kong will be quite different.

I need to catch up on my New York news. I feel so out of the loop now haha, and it's only been two days.

Anyways, enjoy the rest of summer! I'll keep updating.

-Annie
