Protests are happening in Hong Kong, more than 70 students got arrested by the police and about 25 protestants and police officers got injured. This happened within two days.
When I was at a local university on Wednesday, I could see booths and public announcements by students, who called for action to boycott classes and occupy the central area in Hong Kong Island. They stated a 48 hour ultimatum for the Hong Kong government and threatened to surround the government building if their demands are not met. On Friday the demonstrations started on a large-scale.
After spending two days in Berlin I took my flight to Hong Kong via Moscow travelling for more than 18 hours and I finally arrived on 22nd of May in the Special Administrative Region. I was tired to death.
It is hot. Always around 30° Celsius – day and night. I like it, finally I don’t have to freeze anymore. However the heat requires me to sleep longer and when I wake up, I feel like as if a car had hit me several times during the night. But fresh and cold soy milk wakes me up and gets me ready for the day.
My new job already requires a lot of my attention, but it is very promising and I am very excited about the upcoming weeks.
The pictures show the view of the apartment where I am staying these days. It is a very fancy place and I enjoy staying here a lot.
