From top to bottom,
Me and Dan, a philly native and my fellow American in our lack of cultural understanding. He also doesn't understand the bus system at all and it's common to see him jumping onto or chasing after busses at random times of the day
My roommate Adrian and I, he is from 15 minutes away, and is sick nasty at badmitton. He is also going to be my new workout coach.
My 2 heroes from our tour of Hong Kong. This picture was taken at around 9:15 this morning, and these two men were beginning the day with heinekens from 7-11. This prompted the next picture...
Steffan, Markus, and mimi on the bus. Featured is one of our tsintsao, the local chinese beer which we bought immediately after seeing those 2 drinking. Needless to say it made the tour just a bit more interesting. Steffan and Markus are both from Germany, and are quite impressive in their ability to go out everynight and drink until the wee hours of the morning. Mimi is from France and doesn't understand much english, thus she spends most of the day giggling and pretending she understands us.
This was the captain of our water taxi, which floated us around the harbour at a rough speed of 1 knot. At the end of the taxi ride he asked "Did everyone have good time?" When we said yes, he pulled out a tip jar and said "Tip!" This was the only english he spoke.
Another crazy few days in Hong Kong, partying in Lan Kwai Fong, the local bar district which has over 500 bars, eating Gin Grapes, drinking at the 7-11's and of course a tour of mainland china! Here are some pictures of Hong Kong and my friends! P.S. Mom, I actually have friends.
