One Night in Mongkok
p>The past ten days have been amazing…Hong Kong is a city with a surprise at every turn.
The sheer number of people is staggering- it's literally impossible to just walk– you just get swept along in the crowd.
It is not a place for the faint of heart.
My days were spent shopping, sightseeing, taking impossibly cheesy pictures and generally doing as many touristy things that are humanly possible, all while trying not to 1)exceed my credit limit or 2)break anymore suitcases.
(Instead, I just bought more bags.Soft ones, so they're unbreakable!)
What I liked most about Hong Kong was the way I could stand in a huge crowd of people (and this was just about everywhere…) and feel like I was just watching things. There were always so many things to see, so many people moving everywhere, that it's impossible to just…Stop.
I loved that I didn't know anyone there. I loved that for 10 days, I didn't wake up in the morning and rush to check my email, or read the papers, or worry about stupid things like I normally do.
I love that for 10 days I could just ignore the real world! 🙂
I just like being on holiday.
My mum fell asleep earlier, and when I woke her up, she asked…
Where are we now?
She must like being on holiday too.
