Everyone should live in Hong Kong, at least once.
Hong Kong is an experience in intensity. If you have ever eaten authentic Szechuan food, you know what I mean. Levels of flavor gradually pour in and quickly and abruptly overwhelm your senses until you finally gasp for air.
In Hong Kong, I was immediately absorbed into an environment that is at a constant level of intensity and change. There is a fascinating dynamic of contrasts within the city. While living there I developed an awareness of the unpredictable influences that can quickly change everything overnight.
