laid back morning
With all the fun I am having, I need to stay organized and clean. So, washing clothes every few days is a must in this humid area of the world. I sweat through my clothes every 5 minutes… I used my morning to wash and dry clothes while watching the Mariners play the Yankees. MLB.TV has made watching the M's a breeze.
At 1pm I met up with Waleed to hang out at his apartment. He has been showing me how to DJ (my friends back home are laughing). It’s another activity I can do while I’m on the road. We hung out until he had to go back to work at 5pm.
Once back at the hostel, I orchestrated a hike to Lion's Rock. Lion's Rock has one of the best views in all of Hong Kong, especially at night. Four of us headed out at 9pm to catch the MTR.
I had no idea how difficult the hike would be. The humidity was 80% at the time we started. And, it was all up hill... I struggled most of the way as the others were in much better shape than I. By the time I got to the top of the peak, my clothes were drenched with sweat and I was crawling the last few steps. This was the hardest hike I had ever done. Not even close.
In the end, the hike was completely worth it. You'll know why when you see the photos below.

There I am, again.
After battling the heat and humidity, I made it to the top. It was well worth the trip. Going back down was a breeze. Now time for bed.
