This is my Google Maps timeline for the day I flew to HK from Manila. It was 1,149 km (according to Google Maps. See lefthand column. Click on photo to enlarge.)

This is my 4 minute video journal for my trip to Hong Kong last October 8 to 10, 2016:

(choose 720p HD quality on the lower right hand corner for a higher quality video.)

One of the first things I did upon getting there was buying a sim card so I had data on my phone- essential for using maps to get around. I didn’t buy a prepaid sim card from the airport. I got it from one of the Filipino stores in World-Wide Plaza in central (Hong Kong has a lot of Filipino migrant laborers).

It was real cheap because it didn’t have unlimited data. I think it had only 2 GB, but it’s more than sufficient for me for three days. The airport sim cards all offer unlimited data packages, but HK$88 felt like overkill for me since I was there for only three days. This cost me only HK$38.

Past Central, near the mid- Levels, there’s this really cool narrow alley with neat graffiti. I saw a small post with graffiti on it, took some photos, then noticed that there’s an even longer wall up the stairs it with more. I passed it on my walking up to the PMQ (00:17 time stamp in the video journal above).

It’s on the left side of this photo. In this photo, I was actually shooting this woman pushing her cart uphill, the graffiti wall just so happened to be on the edge of it. This was a really steep climb, she’s really incredible.
