(Bow Chicka) Cheung Chau
Let me start by saying that I'm sorry for the title of this blog post, but it made me giggle so it stays. My professor, Adam Keuhl (http://www.adamkuehl.com) led us on an excursion to Cheung Chau, a fishing island in Hong Kong. (Side note- please check out Adam's work. He's an incredible photographer, professor, and person and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to learn from him.) Cheung Chau is easily the most beautiful place I've ever been. To be fair, I haven't been to very many places, but it's genuinely absolutely gorgeous!
We started our day by taking a ferry to the island from Central, picking up mango Mochi, and then commencing our hike on the "Mini Great Wall". Along the hike, we stopped at a temple, a pirate cave, and an abandoned village (talk about variety).
Back in the states, I used to do a lot of urban exploration. It's been a while since I've done it, because Savannah, where I usually live, is not the safest place to explore in terms of unsafe people as well as risk of trespassing. I've missed it at a lot, though, so to have the opportunity to do more "mystery of the history" work was great.
We also ended up on an incredible cliff, where I managed to get some "insta-worthy" photos- follow me: @lexcited (personal) and @lexiepeterson.photo (photography).
I can't wait to explore more areas of Hong Kong. I'll try my best to post the most note-worthy adventures here.
