Boy, documenting means everything because I can show everyone what I see what my own eyes. Hooves of pigs hanging from shops, chicken feet right there on the sidewalk, an dan insane stench around every corner of the street.
What I just realized is as I’m writing this, I see a puff of black smoke that was let off by a passing by ship. This relates to us descending in Hong Kong just yesterday. As we were going down, we were going through a heavy amount of yellow smoke. I thought it was dirty clouds (lol), but in fact, that was the smoke either from China, or the pollution from these ships. AMAZING.
I walked into McDonalds (yes, after seeing what I mentioned above, I just want something that’s familiar) to buy some food and they were acting very odd. I mean you can’t expect much apparently with customer service in any part of HK or China in general, but the cashier was so terrified to touch my hand when I was giving her change. She pulled back her hand more and more and I was just dumbstruck at the whole ordeal. After that, there was a man behind the counter who slammed my soda and my bag on the counter before slamming the piece of paper.
Just weird stuff. I’ve never seen any of this happen before in my life. It’s all very new to me. It doesn’t make them good or bad people, but after that happened, I sought refuge at my hotel and didn’t leave for the rest of the night.
I’m a little scared to go around at the moment, just because the amount of weird looks and things I’ve been seeing in general. So, to reset my mind and everything that has happened, I decided to stay in for the evening and just relax. I don’t want to see anyone or anything for the rest of the day, do some meditation and working on me — just as I do continuously out there in my home in Thailand. So, let’s hope the next one to my travel blog is much better.
