I spent my morning on a stunning beach on the south side of Hong Kong, Repulse Bay enjoying the clear post typhoon weather. Yesterday there was incredible flooding all around the island, with buses even nearly being swept away by excess rain water. The calm weather today seems to reflect my mood. Despite feeling very concerned about the world I feel deep down that everything will be ok, and "this too shall pass."
