Every morning around five, groups of elderly ladies gather on the still empty campus and do exercise. Sometimes it is a form of Tai Chi, sometimes normal gymnastics and stretching. It is not surprising when you see this that Hong Kong has one of the world's highest life expectancies. I was also told it is a certain soup, people drink here. Mostly, it is of course the well managed public health service. So, it gets a bit noisy in the early morning, while our days starts with a late breakfast, where we often meet and chat Barry Kerzin, who recently founded an initiative on Altruism in Medicine and is teaching at the Medical School and the Centre of Buddhist Studies. Very refreshing.
My courses are going well, and I am trying not to be overwhelmed by all the friendly and kind invitations I receive, since I am here. One month, I have to admit, is too short. Next time would be longer. It is already mid-time in Hong Kong.
