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.
