The stereotype of China is lots of bicycles. While this is true in mainland China, Hong Kong is not very bike friendly, because the traffic is very dense and there are no bike paths along the major roads. I did see a man delivering lunches by bicycle near my work. This is a quintessential China picture.I was in the US for almost 2 weeks in June. As a result, I have been away from blogging, because I was preparing for the trip and then recovering from jet lag. It was great to be back in the US and see the family. I filled up on yummy, comfort foods and got some beach time.
Summer in HK is rather boring. Many people are traveling so the social calendar is light. The heat and humidity make you want to stay at home in the AC.
I am very sad to be losing three great friends this summer :-( All three are leaving HK to pursue brighter opportunities. This makes a total of six close friends of mine who have left. I need to meet some new people, but I don't feel motivated. This is the nature of expat life--very transitory. I guess Erik and I are "old timers" now as we close in on three years.
Happy 4th of July to all the Americans!
