I forgot that I went to Hong Kong in March 2011. One of my favorite experiences was seeing the dance company MOMIX at the Hong Kong Cultural Center.
Boxes of cigarettes in the Duty Free sections of Istanbul (top) and Zürich (bottom) airports.
May 2013. A snippet of the drive from Bagdogra Airport up to Makaibari Tea Estate. In Darjeeling, West Bengal, India.
April 2012. Me biking along the exterior wall of the Imperial Palace in Kyoto, Japan.
April 2012. Traveling from Tokyo to Kyoto. Departing Nagoya station on a Shinkansen bullet train. Train staff in Japan have a very interesting protocol of hand and arm signals.
At time 1:22 a cute jingle starts playing, followed by automated announcements.
The 55th Annual Fruits Show. Sims Park, Coonoor, Nilgiri, India
I stumbled upon the annual fruit show while visiting Highfield Tea Estate in Coonoor. The archway over the park entrance was decorated entirely with fruit. Upon entering visitors were in awe at the giant butterfly, again all fruit. There were several tables with fruit carvings, oodles of fruit for sale, and several people won awards…but I could never figure for what.
Male/Female signage for toilets at the New Delhi Airport, India
Toilets at the airport were marked with these giant images. A variety of faces, makeup, hair, jewelry and clothing. Though some people were still confused as to which one to enter since there were no other labels for the toilets (think: standard iconography for M/F toilets).
While on the airplane…
The universal no smoking sign
No smoking in lavatory
No cigarette disposal
…why is there an ash tray in the lavatory?!?!
I mowed my face upon return to Zürich after one month in India.
