Well, for years it's been on my list and I'm finally here – Hong Kong. Like Prague, I believe I had Hong Kong romanticized in my mind, but unlike Prague I'm actually enjoying the reality of the city.
For a born-and-raised Canadian, I can't think of anything I can relate it to to explain it. It is chaos, it is foul odours, it is people, it is commercialized, and it is extremes of all levels. Friends have chosen to live here, and family has decided to leave it and I understand both sides of the situation. I always thought I'd want to live here, and being here a few days I'm sure I could but like others the question now is, "Would I want to?"
