During my short time here, I have done a variety of things I'd never experienced before:
--I have talked with domestic helpers who have been abused by their employers
and have been cheated out of money through illegal agency fees.
|--I have witnessed live seafood waiting to be cooked.|
|--I have attended a beach party thrown by Mission for Migrant Workers.|
|--I have participated an Eid-al-Fitr celebration in Victoria Park.|
--As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I visited a shelter last week.
I tell you all of this to give you a little bit of context for what I've been doing since I arrived in Hong Kong and put the following statement in perspective…
By far, the strangest, most foreign thing I've experienced here is that the fax machine doesn't print a confirmation page after the fax is sent. :)
