Néih hóu

After 8ish hours on Cathay Pacific I've officially made it to Hong Kong.  Perhaps it was the fact that I got zero hours of sleep last night, but so far this place seems a bit overwhelming.  I spent a good hour in the Hong Kong airport trying to communicate with the taxi drivers where I wanted to go.  I think my pronunciation of Chinese words is a bit off, but I eventually was able to pull up a map on my computer and point to where I wanted to go.  30 minutes more in the crazy taxi driving mad on the wrong side of the road and I made it to Tai Po Tsai Village.  

This shall be an interesting adventure, my first trip to East Asia, my first time working in a Chinese lab, and my first time learning how to screen for Bioactivity!
