back to my other life

I just got home from a vacation of a lifetime. It was short enough NOT to get boring, and long enough to be very memorable.

Hong Kong and Macau gave me the perfect balance of shopping, dining, and intellectual stimulation (I had to brush up on Portuguese history, thank you very much).

I walked for hours on cobblestone / rode the MTR,

ate delicious truffles / street-quality nasi goreng,

marveled at remnants of history / evolved urbanity,

appreciated Philippe Starck's modern design / the cheap tiled art in Sau Paulo,

and ran after a very tastefully dressed gay man to ask where the Prada outlet store is. (He was able to give me the right directions).

I will never forget this trip.


(P.S. I have some "for friends only" photos. Kindly email me if you want access so I can let you thru.)

do you mean images of THE VENETIAN? i refuse to show those sorry imitations of italy. like i told you, they're like fake LV bags / amusement parks for drunk adults. they're abominable.
