Absolutely Not Your Monkey

I’ll keep this short and sweet since the electricity keeps shutting off. The travel agency wasn’t answering the phone this morning. No one was at my office either, but according to the Cathay Pacific Web site, my flight to Hong Kong tomorrow morning still hasn’t been cancelled, so I guess I will just get up at 6:30 am tomorrow morning, find a bus to the airport and hope that the tour is still on. The agency is on the 6th floor, so at least they won’t be able to claim flood damage. I have to admit I’m a little nervous about getting on an airplane after the attacks in the US, but statistically speaking, flying hasn’t become more dangerous.

We actually saw blue sky and a bit of sunlight today for the first time in a while. It’s still raining, though, and some foreigner laid his bike down on the wet street below my window just now. I spent the day online and editing my book, which was actually kind of enjoyable. I think it will be a good read. Consequently, however, I don’t have much to write about today. I also don’t know whether I will be able to find web access during the four days I will be in Hong Kong. One thing I do know, is that typhoons are like smoke at a campfire. No matter where I sit, it always blows my way.

Well, in any case, Hong Kong should be fun. I really need to get away for a bit, and even if it rains I’ll enjoy it.
