In a short 72 hour stay Hong Kong has managed to make its case for being the Seattle of the Far East. Not a single peak of the sun has been seen since arrival. It’s been a waiting game at the tennis courts thus far. Figuring out what to do in between one hour delays has probably been the toughest task all day. I have no idea why the tennis supervisor has decided to postpone the starting time every hour when clearly the tennis courts are soaked. There is little room for influencing the decision-making process.
Tennis set aside. Myself, Ryan, Daniel, and Miliaan from Holland managed to find a famous Dim Sum spot, Tim Ho Wan tucked away in Mong Kok. Waiting over an hour in a space comparable to my room at home it was well worth the wait.
After using the public transportation system for a few days now it has been amazing to observe how efficiently and fast paced the people move. The subway system is hands down one of the best in the world. The system works great in the Hong Kong lifestyle. The people here move at such a fast pace, even the escalators at the subway stops move unusually fast. No one stops, when waiting for the next subway or when in transit, people are on their phones or tablets talking, playing games, and watching TV shows. It’s almost as if this city doesn’t know how to sleep.
As of right now my match is still scheduled to go on. Big rain clouds look like they are drifting away, but still no sign of the sun. Stayed tuned!
