I went to Hong Kong. And Macau, a little.

November 5th through 19th. That's why I'm making this. There will be many, many photographs I took, plus my notes and comments, mainly for my family and friends, although you don't have to go away if you're not in one of those groups. I'll be posting pretty regularly and should have everything that's at all interesting posted by the end of December January February March May whenever I get around to it.

For those of you unfamiliar with reading blogs... the newest stuff appears at the top, the oldest at the bottom (except for this post, which I'm sticking to the top so you can read it first if you want - so the newest stuff will be just below this). Click on "Older posts" at the bottom of the page to move back to earlier pages, or use the "Blog Archive" at the right side of the page to navigate to posts you want to see. Only the beginning of a post shows up on the page - click "Read more" to see the rest of it. You can click on the blog title at the top of each page to get back home to the front page.

Now click "Read more." Right there, below on the left. That's it.

Head in the clouds: International Commerce Center

Tallest building in Hong Kong, fourth tallest in the world. So of course I had to go up there. At least, to the 100th floor observation deck (there are 118 floors total). Two regrets: that I didn't go up earlier so that I could have seen the sunset, and that I forgot the mini-binoculars I'd borrowed from my mom (hi, Mom!). Oh, well - next time.

Here you go, proof that I was actually in HK and I didn't just steal these pictures from other people off the internet:
