I put together a short video of the town to capture the atmosphere a little better. This is my first 5×5 video (Vimeo has a whole special category for these if you wanna check it out) so don’t look for anything fancy here.. they’re just a few scenes from the trip 😉
P.S. I noticed a huuuge number of new visitors on my blog this past week (thank you, Tumblr, for featuring my DIY post!). Welcome all! Thanks for checkin’ this blog out! I’ve actually been working on an “About” page, so bear with me!
Weeks may have gone by, but I did not forget about the HK posts
Hong Kong and Shanghai have a lot of similarities (nice and bright buildings next to the old, falling apart ones, for example), but with all the signs hovering over the streets, I thought HK had a stronger “Chinese” feel than Shanghai. I loved it!
At the end of August, I had to go to Hong Kong to apply for my Chinese work visa. I stayed there for about 3 days and I’m glad the visa troubles were minimal and I was able to visit the city a bit
10:00 Stopover at Jinggangshan, Jiangxi province
We had to almost run to the Visa office to make sure my Visa could be done if not in one day, at most in two! Luckily, we didn’t have too much trouble finding the office and arrived there an hour before it was closing.
View of Time Square from the restaurant.
We had a dinner set for two; it was delicious and unexpensive 😉
On our way back to the hostel, we did a little detour into Jardine’s Bazaar. Nothing too exceptional, just cheap clothes, jewelry and souvenirs.
And thus concludes Day 1
