It took a while to get here. I was supposed to arrive a few days earlier, but Super Typhoon Usagi beat me to it, delaying my flight to Hong Kong. Well after the plans had been laid out, I journeyed to the other side of the planet, anxious to submerge myself into a world that is so different from my own: an intoxicating humid breeze wraps itself around me, filling my nostrils with the unfamiliar and pungent fragrances of the Far East. I had a little less than 24 hours to sightsee, before heading to Mainland China.
My favorite place was, by far, the street market.
The end of my brief visit to Hong Kong was spent on the train to the border of Mainland China. Once again, Richard (a Canadian friend, who gets by in Cantonese) kindly accompanied me on this leg of the journey, taking me to my artist residency in nearby Da Wang, China.
