After a long journey I'm finally in Hong Kong! The flight vas good, except the three hours stay in Russia. The few people I asked for help at the airport was not interested in helping at all, and just yelled at me. One woman told me to go in line for check in, and when I finally got there the other woman called me stupid for not understanding that I really didn't need to be there at all. Kind of freaked me out, so started asking other travelers instead.
The flight from Moscow to Hong Kong was quite long, but I had enough to read, so it went quite fast In the night, somewhere over Russia/Mongolia there was an enormous thunderstorm that we could view from the plane. Quite fascinating watching lightning from above, in the middle of the night.
Now I've found my way to the hostel, and checked out the area around. It's located in Kowloon, quite popular shopping area. It's really hot and the humidity is so high that you're soaked wet almost before you're out the door. Unusual to not have any "fresh" air, but I'm just happy it isn't raining!
Now I'm gonna pack all the stuff that I'm leaving in Hong Kong, and find the storage. It's rain season after all, not worth carrying around my macbook. Also have some clothes for when I start studying that I prefer not carrying around. Don't need much while backpacking
Tomorrow I'm leaving for Hanoi! Leaving here tomorrow early, and if it turns out as planned I should be there one Sunday. So the next two nights will be on the rail
