YWCA Hotel Tonight

In contrast to the two luxury hotels I’ve been in, here’s my simple room for tonight. It’s a matter of location, location. Just up the hill from the teeming Mong Kok district, where I went today with Trevor and his friend. To tell the truth, I’m happier in a simple room like this. Feels better. Can open the windows. This is my last night. I’ve got a ton of photos and experiences, maybe I can get some posts done when I’m waiting for my (1AM) flight tomorrow night. It’s 9 and am heading out to eat and be dazzled by sights, sounds, smells, and people. Going to try out my new 1.7 f-stop Panasonic Lumix (G1) lens; everything so far shot with Canon Powershot S95 pocket camera. Is this an exciting city!

About Lloyd Kahn

He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
