The first four things I am going to do when I finally arrive in Hong Kong (Two days of traveling? BLEH!)
4. Sleep off my jet lag!! I arrive at 7am Saturday morning and start work Wednesday morning. I am sure I will be glad for the time to adjust to the new sleep schedule.
3. Find the local store/market and gather supplies. I will arrive with a jar of peanut butter and a sleeve of crackers, but I can’t imagine, even rationed carefully, that they will last long. And I am so excited to jump into a new world of food!
2. Community mapping! Oh yay (other Minterns and US2s – we all know how fun this can be!) It is so important, to feel apart of a community, to know your community. So I will spend some time just wandering around, figuring out where things are, walk my route to work a few times to become familiar with it, meet some of the neighbors, learn where the hospital/clinic is, and get just a general idea of the layout of my area.
1. Find an internet cafe or how to get access in my flat so I can let everyone know that I arrived safely. I will certainly try to post, though it may be short to start out with.
