Hong Kong. I love Hong Kong.
It is colorful, energetic, vibrant, full of fun, Hong Kong has always been the city of excitement…not to mention the drastic changes in the past 15 years. I love the city and I certainly miss the city a lot…therefore it’s so nice to get to read what Michael Crichton once said about the city, “There are few sights as exciting as landing in Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong at night. The mountains, the water, the lights of the buildings make it magical, like flying into the center of a glowing jewel. I was tremendously excited as I looked out the window. And then to step off the plane and be assailed by the smells — that peculiarly Asian combination of sea water, dried fish, packed humanity — my excitement increased tenfold. And during in a taxi through the city, past the open, brightly lit stalls, people squatting on the pavement, working, all the street life — fantastic! I had never seen anything like this!”
