Ahhhh, look at All the LOVELY People

Of all the memorable things we did during our one week in Hong Kong, I think being lost in a sea of people on the streets is what I miss most. As strange as that seems, there is something very warm about being in a foreign place that is alive and booming with activity- your afternoon strolls are never really strolls but people-watching sessions- food stands, loud taxi horns, Cantonese words from all directions. In this way, Hong Kong is no different from any other big city in the U.S. but compared to cities such as New York and Chicago, where you are part of the activity, in a foreign city, you are an outsider looking in. So your walks become more than just a way to get to your next appointment-every time you step outside, you’re in for a cultural lesson.
