Small World. Snapshots, Part III.

I've been in Hong Kong for over 5 weeks now- which means I'm 1/3 through my project. I can't believe how fast time is flying by.

Last week, I moved to another part of HK known as the Western District. My neighborhood is called Sai Ying Pun. Ever since changing apartments, I have felt much more optimistic and excited about living in this city. My apartment is swankier and more spacious, I have a view of the sky, and the neighborhood is more affordable, less crowded, and within walking distance of the busier districts.

My boyfriend was able to connect me with one of his friends from North Carolina. Her company has been priceless! It's great to have a girl friend in this new city and access to meeting more people my age. The other night, I met a guy from GWU that graduated in my year! It's incredible that I lived within 3 blocks of him for 4 years in DC and never met him once- but here I was, sitting in a living room on the other side of the world, in a city with 6 million more people than DC, and I was chatting away with a fellow Foggy Bottom-er. 

What a small world.

Love the bamboo scaffolding. Something beautiful about using bamboo in an industrialized city.

My apartment building. We were the first people to move in. I have the whole floor to myself!

All the HK cabs are red Toyotas.

Foggy Hong Kong. We took the Star Ferry from Kowloon to HK Island. Meet Casey from NC.
