Day one in Hong Kong

by on under Travel

After 12 hours in Hong Kong the jet lag has settled in. We gently enjoyed some amazing seafood caught in a bucket down the road and prepared by Diana’s mum. Diana has a network of hospitable family here and I quickly feel at home. The incredible human density of the city is offset by deserted islands and green.
