Day 16: 15 Minutes

We saw an amazing Andy Warhol exhibit at the Hong Kong museum of art today. It is touring the world so if you get a chance to see it do so. It is a fascinating and incredible collection of his work.

The three most memorable pieces for me were:
1) he did a painting of a photo of the Birmingham race riot, which was significant to me because of my great interest in the march to civil rights
2) his painting of a US weather map – Joseph and I both liked this one a lot but I haven’t been able to find a print for sale yet
3) there was a room of balloons that would float freely around because of fans and what the balloons were filled with; we had a good time playing in it

I’m going to have to read more about Andy Warhol now.

Joseph and I went to his university in the morning because he had an errand to run and I wanted to see where he worked. His campus has some pretty neat views. In a park there is this tree whose bark is like red dust, which was cool.

I also had a bubble tea in the afternoon, which is a Hong Kong drink Mary really wanted me to try. It was really good. I should’ve tried it earlier so I could have had more of it.

Speaking of Mary, she made dinner again. This time it was a delicious vegetable pot pie with mash potatoes and peas on top. Picture is attached. Mary is a great cook (and also an incredible cake baker, seriously you should see some of the cakes she made back in CU).

We played 7 Wonders and Bohnanza before bed. Those were fitting choices because we played A LOT of them in Bali.

I leave for the airport in the morning. This has been an incredible two weeks. And that is due in large point to the Joneses. I’ll miss them greatly.
