Goodbye and Hello

Goodbye Vermont.
Goodbye blueberries and fresh milk and maple syrup. Goodbye farmer's market and quiet streets and grassy yard and trampoline. Goodbye meals on the porch and large washer and dryer and oven. Goodbye cool nights and swimming in the creek and pastoral landscapes. Goodbye farms and cows and horses and driving to the grocery store. Goodbye home for 7 weeks, and goodbye new friends and old friends.
The problem with getting attached is that it's so hard to leave.

Hello Hong Kong.
Hello awesome playgrounds and trains and taxis. Hello foot massage and head massage and great hair cuts. Hello shaved ice cream and bubble tea and elevators and escalators. Hello Octopus card and pho and dumplings and air conditioning. Hello beach and mangoes and lychee and fresh juice. Hello malls and walkways and people and great cell phone coverage. Hello home for the next 10 months, and hello new friends and old friends.
The great thing about getting attached is that it's so nice to come home to.
