If I tell you there's nothing to worry about, who is going to tell me??? I'm nervous as hell. Hong Kong is in an uproar, there are trade and intellectual property meetings coming up soon...eeks! He has no GF right now. It's mainly a rock climbing, travel Asia kinda thing. He's taking 6 months off and just doing it. He's going by himself but knows people in HK and all over there and will be mostly going to those places. Some people he's met IRL, some are internet friends or friends of friends. He'll be 6 weeks in one place where there are oodles of ex-Pats.
