KOWLOON OVER THE MOON

2O HR FLIGHT FROM LAX.  NIGHT AIR INDICATES AIR  MUGINESS TO FOLLOW.  I’M NOT THE PREPARED TRAVELER ALTHOUGH I SHOULD BE.  NO SHANGRI LA SHUTTLE AS PROMISED 0100AM TAXI 280 HK DOLLARS=40.00 DOLLARS. AIN’T COMPLAINING ONLY EXPLAINING.  FIRST THING I NOTICE IS THE LENGTHY HORN HONK WHICH IS NEW YORK STYLE MINUS THE FINGER.  14 TONE CANTONESE PUTS MY 7 LAYER MANDARIN TO NO USE. MA MA FU FOO. QUICKLY LEARN MONEY CONVERSION SO I CAN WHEEL AND DEAL FOR A TAILORED BLAZER.  “DI TOU ZUO” REIGNS  SUPREME. EVERYONE’S HEAD DOWN ON THAT DARN PHONE. ITS MOTHERS DAY SO I TOOK OUT THE SPECIAL  LITTLE LADY FOR DIM SUM AND A COLA.  BACK TO HOTEL BCUZ HER FOOD COMA AND BITCHIN TV FROM AROUND THE WORLD GONNA BUY ME SOME FREEDOM TO ROAM.  NO HIGH PRESSURE HUSTLE FROM THE  STREETS  WHICH ARE ALSO SURPRISINGLY CLEAN.  KOWLOON FEELS RELAXED EVEN THOUGH YOU TUBE VIDEO STATED A FORM OF RUDENESS OF THE PEOPLE  BUT IT’S MORE LIKE THEY SKIP THE NICETIES.   I LOOK ACROSS THE BAY AT HONG KONG ISLAND AND IT’S A SAN FRANCISCO ON STEROIDS.  I PURCHASED AN  OCTOPUS CARD TO GREET THE  VERTICAL MADNESS.  THE METRO TRANSIT R PASS.  STEAMING BOILING EGGS REPLACE THE PICKLE JAR AT MANY A KIOSK.  HAVENT SEEN ANY HOMELESS PEOPLE OR BEGGARS. THIS 6.5 ACRE IS DENSELY POPULATED. AN EQUIVALENT TO 3.2 MILLION PER SQUARE MILE ACCORDING GOGGLE.  THIS MIGHT  EXPLAIN THE LENGTHY HONKING. ZAIJIAN
