Here’s the second installment of my study abroad adventures in Asia. Read how I began my exploration and continued acclimation to my new home away from home.

Well! It was quite a full first week for me in Hong Kong, to say the least.
Since arriving, I’d been to Stanley Market and Victoria’s Peak, ridden the tram down from the top (which naturally had a Burger King and Bubba Gump Shrimp company on top), visited Wong Tai Sin temple in the middle of Hong Kong, watched the horse races at Happy Valley one evening (and watched others throw away money betting with no idea what the stats meant), and wandered in awe around Tsim Sha Tsui (TST to everyone else) where some friends and I bought hydro-foil tickets for a day trip to Macau the following weekend during the Chinese New Year. Whew!
