I got to Hong Kong for work last week, and over the weekend I went to Thailand, one of my favorite countries in the world. It was a quick trip, but nice to spend the weekend somewhere different. And nice to be able to get a massage -- Thai massages are plentiful and cheap in Bangkok, and who was I to say no?
Back in Hong Kong, I went to a dinner last night where someone asked the waitress to recommend an appetizer. "What about Beef Tongue?" "Do you have anything a little less exotic?" "How about Salad?" There's no middle ground, I guess. It made me laugh.
I've had barely a second to catch my breath this trip, with all the meetings, dinners and trips to China. But I am looking forward to a nice relaxing dinner with my dragon boat racing friend at a Nepali restaurant (our favorite) in Cental, with lots of Mango Lassi!
Good luck to Dave, he starts school tomorrow!
