Eating My Way Through the Pearl of the Orient
Hong Kong: dim sum edition! (And dem sum. Sorry.) Hope you’re not hungry. I’ve been eating Chinese food my whole life… or so I thought until I landed in this city. A return visit is required if for no other reason than to chow down on char siu, roast goose, and congee.
Wish I’d had more time to explore some of the natural beauty that’s just on the edge of the metropolis. But giant cities thrill me, and this was no exception. It really reminded me — more than Tokyo or Bangkok — of New York City. The buzz, the pace, the towers, the lights.
Oh yeah — and the expense. Holy cow.
This short trip marked passport stamp #16 in 20 months (although Hong Kong doesn’t actually stamp your passport, they give you a small ticket). Closing in on two years abroad. Hard to believe.
