Draggle’s Asian Journey Part I — Hong Kong

I promised I’d write a post about my trip this summer. That was two months ago, but better late than never. Not anime, but I went to Japan, so I figured people might be interested.

The reason I went on this trip in the first place is because I had to present at a robotics conference in Hong Kong. I had just graduated and was taking a vacation for the summer, so I figured, since I was already over there, why not see Asia?

Anyway, I went to the conference, saw a bunch of friends from all over the world, gave my presentation. My presentation kind of sucked because I was distracted by these two guys who came in, sat right in front of me, and proceeded to talk over me for the first five minutes of the presentation. Threw me off. Oh well.
