Hey gang I just got back from 10 days of Martial Arts Training (Yi-Quan and Shin-Yi) in Hong Kong. This single image I think summarizes the city best.

Re: Hong Kong in a Nutshell

wow. the wife is always saying how we should go see Hong Kong, Beijing or some of the cities of India, and I doubt it'll ever happen. I see photos like that and immediately start hyperventilating.

anymore when I travel I can put up with a major city for a day or two and then I'm ready to go see some small towns.

There are districts in Hong Kong where over 50,000 people live per sq Kilometer....Basically there are 7million people in less land space than the city of Portland.

Does Yi-Quan and Shin Yi come with fried rice or Chow mein?

Going to Hong Kong we flew From Portland to Seattle (45minutes) 2 hour layover in Seattle, then Seattle to Taipei Taiwan (14 hours) 1 hour layover then Taipei to Hong Kong 1.5 hours.

Coming back home the 2 shorter flights were the same, but the long flight was only 10 hours.

Ohh yeah and we flew China arilines which ironically designs their planes for Chinese sized people.

So your saying that there wasn't a lot of leg room? So tell me honestly, did you feel like an NBA player over there with people looking at you because of your height? :biggrin:

We id get quite a few looks as there wasa group of a bout 5 of us that were often walking around...none of us under 6' and the tallest was 6'4" I'd guess teh average man over there is about 5'5" maybe 5'6" and women in general were around 5'1" or so.
