Me Eating a Tiny Scorpion in Beijing

Me Eating a Tiny Scorpion in Beijing

I did actually study abroad in Hong Kong for five months. I would have stayed longer if I’d been able to. I stayed in residence and though I met some great people and had a lot of fun, I’d probably like to have my own place to live. I think I drove my roommate a little batty the last time, though we are still good friends, right Kristel?

If I could do it again, I’d do Japan. I’ve always loved the Asian countries and it’s definitely on my bucket list. I’d ride the trains, eat sushi as much as possible, train in the same martial arts that I do here and finally pick up the Japanese language.

I’d visit Mount Fuji and the shrine of the 47 Ronin. I’d travel to Naha, Osaka, Nagasaki and Okinawa. It would take me probably years to do it, but I’d do it all. Might still do it, just as a travel. But who knows what the future holds?

Another daily prompt that I have yet to post asked us to pick a word we had never heard before and use it in a sentence. I am now prompted to post that one shortly, but here is the image I found when I searched “Sapiosexual”. Love this word.

It wasn’t just the fact they were in motion, but the expression on his face. Taken on a boat tour in Hong Kong, October 2007. There were a bunch taken that day, but this is one of the best.
