Inspiration, Not Expiration

It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the Great Man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hong Kong Holiday

Well here I am in Hong Kong. It's been a while since I've been here. I think I was last here two years ago.

There was a lot of trouble to get annual leave. I had originally asked for my on-call rota to be cleared in September because that was when I thought I might take my holiday.

Unfortunately, due to short-staffing in the team I'm working in (due to lots of people taking leave at the same time), I agreed to move it to October. Unfortunately this involved a lot of reorganisation with my duties and I was only able to know for sure and book my tickets a week before I flew!

I've been here almost a week now, and I guess I've adjusted to the timezone difference (7 hours ahead).

The great thing about Hong Kong is the food. You can get an interesting variety of food and at really cheap prices (well, compared to the UK at any rate!).

I've got one more day here in Hong Kong. Better make the most of it!
