After 28 hours of travel from Oklahoma, I’m pleased to report I’ve arrived safety in Hong Kong and am looking forward to a day of visiting several international schools tomorrow. The 21st Century Learning @ Hong Kong Conference starts on Thursday. Before catching some sleep tonight, I uploaded about 50 photos to Flickr from my trip today, and also recorded a short, 10 photo VoiceThread about some of the highlights.
Two of the most notable things about the trip here were the number of folks wearing health masks at all times, because of concerns about H1N1 flu, and the fact that Hong Kong had a typhoon yesterday which cancelled school for everyone. Glad I didn’t try to arrive a day sooner!
