我到香港啦!




I've reached Hong Kong (香港). It is a strange place where the buildings are enormous, people would prefer to speak to you in English, the food is delicious and Indian people speak fluent Cantonese.
I came here via Shenzhen (深圳), which was incredibly convenient. I took a train from Guangzhou (广州) to Shenzhen and then followed the signs pointing towards Hong Kong. I had to fill out a questionnaire when I reached Customs about the Swine Flu, and there was a looped recording advising the public to seek a doctor if they are feeling flu-like symptoms. It was all a bit intimidating.
I found a cheap hotel which is run by a very sweet old man. I will stay here tonight, pick up my visa tomorrow (it's already processing) and be on my way back to Guangzhou tomorrow.
