HK, back to the (tropical) hood

Nothing makes me more excited to be back in HK.

A place that has never been home, yet I could easily call it like that. Why? I often ask myself that. I’m not fascinated by China, and I don’t really consider HK part of China, despite some resemblance… So what is it? I guess it’s because when you start travelling around Asia, that crazy continent gets inside of you, like a virus and you can’t get it out anymore. But you sum Asia to all the Western treats, you get HK. A virus with comfort. And an incredible selection for eating out and shopping.

Plus, the mountains and water all around… It’s addicting!

I can’t spend other words more, and need to show the pictures. This is a big selection of an even bigger album, sorry to overwhelm you with HK-ism. For me it’s a bit of religion.

Ok, that’s enough. I’m already too nostalgic by nature.
