Happy Thanksgiving from Hong Kong!
Although I am not sure that I will get any turkey, I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving that is full of food, family and friends! I think my American friends and I will try to get together for the company even if we are unable to find some turkey (duck may have to do).
I apologize again for no post in such a long time. With my recent trip to Bangkok as well as the semester coming to an end, it has gotten quite busy for me in the last few weeks. But! I have finished two projects this week and now I have just a paper or two until final exams.
Before I start explaining my trip to Thailand, last night several of my friends from Babson who were studying in Russia and China joined Hong and I for an epic night all over Hong Kong Island. My good friend Connor, Nick and Christina joined a few friends from St. Olaf College (on their study abroad program called Global) and we enjoyed a night at Happy Valley, watching horses race while people’s lives were lost or made. We did a Hong Kong nightlife tour all in a few hours ending at a diner called the Flying Pan. To American standards, perhaps it wasn’t great food. But to me (mind you I haven’t had real American breakfast food since my whole time here), it was a great taste of home. It was a great night with great company.
