Typhoon Nesat delays shipping and interns!

Last week I tried to get a ferry from Zhuhai to Hong Kong, unfortunately it was in the mist of typhoon season, a very tricky journey. After arriving at the ferry port it took me around half an hour to realize that they were not running due to the level 8 typhoon warning in Hong Kong. So instead I decided to get a bus to Shenzhen and go to Hong Kong by land.

It did make the trip a lot longer, but I did get to see some very interesting places. As we pulled out of the ferry port we drove along the coastal road, and outside it literally looked like something out of a disaster movie:

Hong Kong was pretty much closed down once we finally got there- always be careful of traveling in China when there is a typhoon warning as public transport is often delayed and full.
