Hong Kong Interlude

Gong hei fat choi, ya'll! Happy, happy Chinese New Year! I interrupt this looong look back through time to share a little bit of what's currently going on in our world. Just to catch you up, yes we are actually in Hong Kong, and yes, we totally freaking love it here! HK is a dream post. That doesn't mean everything is totally perfect, of course. Every place has its good points and its bad points. But I can say with confidence that the good points here heavily outweigh the bad points. Hong Kong is a vibrant, exciting city with a ton of things to do. We haven't even begun to scratch the surface of our new home, and we are already in love with the ease of movement, the feel and vibe of the city, and how quickly and seamlessly we have integrated into life here.

 Lion Dance just up the street from our apartment (apparently it's very common here for buildings to sponsor these dances during Chinese New Year for good fortune).



We live just a few blocks away from Hong Kong Park and the Hong Kong Zoo. Hong Kong is full of places for kids, you just have to suss them out sometimes. The second photo is from a kid zone called Happy Jump Land tucked away in a mall called the Dragon Center in Sham Shui Po, Kowloon.

Kowloon side - great for cheap eats and markets to be shared with 1 million of your closest friends :)


More Chinese New Year pictures from around town.


The view from our apartment. Life really can't get much better than this.

Wow that is fantastic. I can't wait to come visit you next year! So glad things are going so well for you all. Sorry we missed your Skype call last night. We will try to remember to always keep a computer on on Friday evenings.
