your work is sending you where?

4 Aug

for a few months a big international trip has been dangled in front of me for work. things looked promising for a while and then due to personal/schedule/life changes it fell through. well last friday as i was waiting for my delayed flight home, i got word that i’m headed to southeast asia.

kate takes on HONG KONG scheduled for september 2010.

you know why i’m super excited about going to hong kong? for the first time in my life i’m not going to be a shrimp. i look forward to being on the tall side. wahoo!

i kid, i kid. i’ve never been to asia so i’m pretty excited to visit a completely new culture, try out the food, live a city that i’ve heard is like “new york on steroids.”

so first things first. like looking up exactly where hong kong is would be helpful. google search hong kong map. check.

research basic culture, demographics, and weather.

this is where i got a little nervous thanks to this quote from wikipedia:

“Typhoons usually occur between June and September and can bring a halt to local business activities for a day or less.”

Oh you know, just a little TYPHOON???!!!! to shake things up. I think a typhoon is the last of the natural disasters i’ve yet to experience but here’s hoping this stays on the “not yet experienced” list. right up there with north dakota.

and i couldn’t miss a visit to the worlds longest escalator, right?

man, have i got my priorities straight or what? 🙂

    You need to talk to Lauren about HK. She lived there for 3 years back in middle school and high school. I’m sure she’d have a lot to share with you about the culture and possible things to do while you’re there.
