.... so the final week left to do, then I can be heading home at last.
Whilst I was beavering away the other day, my other half took a trip over to Macau where this picture was taken.
Formerly a Portuguese colony, Macau has some unusual architecture for this part of the world. This ruin was once part of an impressive church atop the hill.
.... so only a month to go now ! The unsettled weather which greeted my arrival has continued all week, with a brief respite on Thursday only. I managed to avoid getting too wet on the way to and from work, nonetheless.
My trusty old laptop has been playing up and Windows has somehow unactivated itself. I've spent most of my free time trying to get to the bottom of this, but to no avail. Trawling the net has revealed plenty of other folk with the same problem, but no solutions other than wiping the drive and starting again. At the root of it is Access Denied - somehow Windows can't access the key verification data .... all very frustrating as I don't have access to my kit out here to do a re-install.
A disappointing hotel and room this time - a brick wall for a view and the only glimpse of a sky available is by lying on the floor. Just as well I'm out at work most of the time !
.... greeted my arrival in Hong Kong yesterday, making for a rather bumpy descent towards the runway, although the touch-down was pretty smooth at the end. The unsettled weather, coming from a tropical storm a little to the west of HK, is going to keep going most of the coming week. It was a long flight, as always, and having to wait nearly 1H20 for the luggage to show up was most unwelcome !
Work starts with meetings tomorrow and then the general process begins in earnest on Tuesday. Getting around Hong Kong in the wind and rain will not be a pleasant prospect, but it has to be done.
Have you sampled any of the live recordings of choral music featured on the Moments Musicaux page of the website?
Or there's a Christmas Carol selection available here.
