After we checked in and offloaded the weight on our shoulders at Hong Kong station, we popped into popular conveyor belt (haha, airport pun) chain Sen Ryo (http://www.sen-ryo.com.hk/tc/) for lunch.
Feasted on toro nigiris, aburi scallop and flounder sushi, fatty salmon and hamachi sashimi, and grilled salmon collars among other things.
It was a bittersweet lunch at Sen Ryo as I felt both happy and apprehensive about returning home. But I know the reasons I loved being away - novelty and anonymity - would fade away and I would soon grow frustrated about being trapped wherever I am.
A weekend getaway really does wonders for the soul (this might be the Omega 3 talking). Though Hong Kong seems like one of the last places on planet Earth to feel relaxed and calm, that was exactly how I felt throughout our vacation.
