DAY ONE and TWO Kim – a friend at work and makes things happen guy hooked me up with some sweet friends of his in HK and they’ve showed me round and driven me everywhere and bought me dinner and I would have been sleeping under a bridge with a copy of the HK times … Continue reading I came very close to eating pork intestine today.
