Hong Kong

Ah, September 11th. a day to remember, its hard to imagine. its been eight years since that day in NYC and we are STILL having a war over it. WWII didn't even last that long. Non the less i am not in the US and i dont have to think about it.

i arrived in hong kong from hainan via china airways. and China is a lot more modernized than i previously thought. Probably because of the 10 trillion dollars we owe them. The US is in so much debt that we may never recover.

After i got off the plane i immediately wanted to go site seeing. just to see another culture, at least its big cities. This is probably the biggest city i have visited thus far. And i have one thing to say. There are a lot of people here, in some of the more populated cities i felt suffocated to how many people there are.

I didnt feel like doing anything too active this weekend, just un wind for a while. so i went shopping for random souvenirs for the family. i found a lot of interesting things here. One of them was British cigarettes that aren't available in the US that i found in china. and they were 22$ a carton, thats like 2.20 a pack. in the US they are going for about 50$ a carton. so i bought me a few cartons for the road.
