Anyway, no time for a real post now, but here's an excerpt from a travelogue sent by my middle brother from Hong Kong -- he's not to be confused with my baby brother, who's currently in Bangladesh, and whose post on Bengali World Cup mania I posted a few days ago:
The city of Hong Kong is spectacular. It’s as if someone scrunched New York City up into one big hilly mess, with buildings and walkways built on top of each other. The place is so densely packed and hilly that in some places you take actual escalators to go from one neighborhood to another.The rest of the travelogue was mostly about his personal affairs in Hong Kong. It sounds like a fascinating place and I'd like to get out there sometime soon.
