    Hong Kong Part 1

    April 21, 2018 in Hong Kong ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    I had a great time working together with my English collegues from Shanghai, Bejing, Chiang Mai, Tokyo and Seoul. Met some really awesome people who were great to work and to spend some quality time with. Funnily, one turned out to have studied in Kiel at the same time as I (though we only knew each other from sight) and another one had lived in Hannover and worked in Hildesheim before moving to Shanghai 7 years ago. We'd definately met and have some common aquaintances. The world is such a small place.
    Hong Kong has changed a lot since I was here in 2000 but it's definately a great place to discover. Still a mix of old and new, west and east, clean and dodgy. Though we worked most of the time of my stay there I did get the chance to do some sight seeing. We also checked out the party zone of the city. How strange it felt to have a drink in the middle of the street.

    Crazy taxi ride

    April 20, 2018 in Hong Kong ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    My bag and I arrived with an hour delay in Hong Kong. Since the last express train had already left, I had to take a taxi. My driver drives like a mad man. And he's got 5!!! smart phones attached to the inside of his car all around his steering weel all showing something different. Plus he is talking on his head phone. Maybe he is a part time broker?Read more

    Flight delayed....

    April 19, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Déjà Vu.... Back at Terminal 3 of Soekarno Hatta Airport, Jakarta. Plane delayed...again. Hoping I'll get my connecting flight to Hong Kong otherwise I'll have to spend the night at the airport of Kuala Lumpur and the comittee will have to work without me... At least this is an awesome terminal and It's highly interesting to watch the pilgrims waiting to get on the plane to Saudi Arabia.... all dressed alike even having the exact same suitcase.Read more
