The weather took a turn for the worse this weekend. It was incredibly humid and very hot--probably close to 100% humidity and in the 90s. The temperature is reported in Celsius so I am never totally sure how hot it is. Most things are in metric including weights at the grocery store and on the scale in the gym. The treadmill measures in kilometers, which I like because I set the speed to what feels comfortable as opposed to trying to hit a mile-per-minute target.
This weekend we shopped for furniture and explored the area near our apartment. We were excited to discover it is a manageable walk from the apartment to the Jordan MTR (subway) stop. I am not sure where I'll do the main grocery shopping. There is a great grocery store one MTR stop away, but it is the HK equivalent to Whole Foods and that's just too pricey.
On Saturday, we went out for pizza in Central; it was very good. Then we had some beers in Lan Kwai Fung, the area where all the bars are. It was a good time.
Below are a few pictures of the hotel where we are staying and the view from the entrance. The room is very modest compaired to the lobby. You can see how hazy and humid it is from the harbor picture. This haze is mostly pollution. I promise to take pictures of some food tomorrow. I was so hungry for dinner tonight that I couldn't wait :-)
