Well the heat is starting to get to me? Couldn't face doing much yesterday so I thought I'd head to thebreach for the day and find a nice tree to relax under and go for a swim. Managed to find the bus to the south side of hang kong island to a nice littletown calledrepulse bay. The beach was a little crowdestand I spied a little cove just down the coast so off I went to have a look for it. 34 degrees at 11 am is not the time foradventuring and by the time I got there I was a sweaty mess. But the swim was worth it water was warm but felt like ice. When up to my chest I couldn't see my feet which made me worry slightly about pollution. There were tankers in the distance,and since you can't see more than a km or two bc of the haze/smog I knew they weren't too far but nothing was gonna stop my refreshing dip. Then when I got out I was still hot so I went again. The walk back to repulse bay waskiller and I went to the first air conditioned spot I could see for lunch - pizza hut hahah I hBaka sesame roll and croissant forbreakfast and thenspaghetti carbonara for lunch with about 8 glasses of water.
Decided to have a stroll around and got a bit lost. Not cool since I was about dead from the heat. Finally found the bus stop to get back into the city. Must've had mild heat stroke/exhaustion bc I got a whopping headache and fell right to sleep when I got back at 500. So here I am on the steps of the library at 6am using their wireless. It's amazing how early things get going here. At 530 the sky starts to brighten and already the parks are full of ppl doing yoga or tai chi or whatever it is they're doing. Guess ya gotta exercise early when it's 30 degrees and 83%humidity at 540am.
Well the trip is a little boring so far but gotta adjust to this heat or I'm gonna kill myself. Gonna venture tokowloon today across the harbourfront to the history museum and a few markets. Looks like rain today, although so has every day so farand to a drop yet.
