A couple of weeks back I went to Hong Kong for a long weekend trip to see my friend Greta. It was my first time there and HOLY SHIT what a contrast to Beijing. Hong Kong was kind of as if New York and some tropical place had a baby and it really got 50% of each parent. On the one side there's the humidity (which was not fun for my hair) and the tropical looking surroundings and beaches, but all of a sudden all of these skyscrapers peak forward and you're in this crazy metropolis. I think it's safe to say I love it. The one thing that kind of bugged me was how entitled the western youth I met there felt. Not a single person spoke a word of mandarin or cantonese, which is understandable because there's really no need for it like there is in Beijing since a lot of times people don't speak English. I just find it to be such a waste of an opportunity to not try and at least learn more than ni hao, right?
Anyways, here are some photos from when I visited!
