Pat and I went to see the HK Ballet's performance of The Merry Widow this afternoon down in TST.
This is my 3rd or 4th ballet to attend since coming to HK, and I think I enjoyed this one the most so far. Particularly I thought they did a pretty good job with the costumes and sets. I snuck a picture during the curtain call:

I just got home a few minutes ago and took a shower. After work I went to the station and took the train up to Fanling (thats two stops short of the border with China (Shenzhen). My bike was waiting for me there and ready for a good healthy 12 mile (20km) ride home.

strange article out of West Virginia:
Between my trip last week to japan and the fact that the cable in my HK apartment finally gets Japanese TV signals consistantly for the first time ever, i have been catching up on my japanese baseball coverage... but ironically most everything is about japanese baseball in the US!
I turned on HK ESPN to find them showing the Mariners vs the Yankees game from last friday... it was a japanese pitcher, a japanese hitter or two and a japanese outfielder! (Igawa, Ichiro/Johjima and Matsue, respectively). Unfortunately Read more
