Hong Kong – Hello Western lifestyle

First of all apologise it took me so long to update the blog. I didn’t expect it like this, but Hong Kong really kept me busy. But let me start from the beginning.

As already mentioned I took the train from Guilin to Shenzhen to go to Hong Kong. You basically step out of the train and walk a few minutes and there it is, the border to the 'Western World'. The queue for Chinese people was massive, but lucky me the one for foreigners fairly small. I think it took me 30 minutes until I had my departure stamp and left Mainland China. I then took the train to my Couchsurfing host's apartment. His name is Alex and he is a local. He works as a kinder garden teacher, however, is currently studying to become a pilot. After I had dropped my stuff at his he showed me around the area a bit. In the evening we went to a BBQ a guy had organised through Couchsurfing. I met a lot of interesting people and had so much fun that night. Hong Kong BBQs are a bit different to German one’s tho. The most popular items on the grill were fishballs.

I got on well with a few people, so that we decided to meet up again and exchanged numbers. Yvonne a girl born in Hong Kong and raised in Portland, Oregon (US) and Orlando, a guy from Macau, who just came back from a 3-months trip to Europe were the two I spoke the most. As everyone had to catch the last train at midnight the whole BBQ group set off together and took a minibus back to the MTR station. It was quite funny cause the minibuses have aa capacity of 16 people and we were 15. So we hoped the minibus would be kind of empty. Lucky us it was, 3 people were sitting in it, when it arrived and as two people were getting off there was exactly the amount of seats available as we were people. As soon as the other person got off we were having a little party in the minibus hehe
