When I arrived in Hong Kong I played it off like I wasn't suffering from jet lag. Well, I'm a big fat liar. I was exhausted. I slept on the plane but nothing can really prepare you for a 12-hour time change after a 15-hour flight.
I landed around 3 p.m. and took the Airport Express train into the city. I was staying in the Central neighborhood and it was a quick taxi to the apartment from the train station. The taxi ride was quick but I was already in awe of everything. The buildings were so tall, there were so many people, taxis were so red!
