Same Same But Different

Get ready for shoebox living! My friend quipped, when news broke that we were moving to Hong Kong. As you'd have known by now, we've crossed oceans to a vastly different part of the world. One that is somewhat familiar, yet strange in many ways. Strange because we are not used to how things work here. Familiar, because it looks like the kind of concrete jungle we grew up on.

First Impressions: Hong Kong

We arrived late into the night after laying over in Chicago and Tokyo, some 30 hours later. We had expected to be greeted with winter but it was still a mild 25ÂșC. Can I just say at this point, it is surreal to switch back to celsius? I never had any formula for the conversion but it would have never helped because numbers don't mean anything till you experience how it feels.
