Red Cat Firsts - The Lost Manual

June 4th 2009

(only cost 50 cents RMM, 10 cents Canadian)

June 8th 2009
~ Using an arport squat toilet (only to later find they had some western ones too)
~ Eating a sub without touching it (I'm crafty! Or just observant)

~ On a plane in a lightening storm (Is this safe and do I have a choice?)
~ First subway ride

First Impressions of Hong Kong
~ Huge hills and mountains!
