The P52 theme this week is hunger. Yes...the theme totally has to do with the awesome Hunger Games series, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. That said, there was simply no way I was going to take pictures of kids killing one another, so I decided on a different interpretation of this theme. My initial thought was to share some of the go-to snacks people enjoy here in Hong Kong (hunger = food), but sadly time got the better of me, so that will have to be shared some other time. You can totally hold me to it too! :) As my last post was quite sad, I thought I'd share something more lighthearted this time.
So this week I've decided to share some photos from my time at the Hong Kong Sevens, which is a rugby tournament that includes 24 of the worlds best sevens rugby teams. I've never watched rugby before today, so I really had no idea what to expect. The first thing I noticed was how incredibly fit the rugby players are, both the men and the women. They were running, tackling, and going full on for 2 seven minute halves all without any padding or protection. Intense. Another thing I noticed were the spectators who drank copious amounts of alcohol and were from all different walks of life, though notably mostly caucasian/western. There were families, business men, regular folk (like Matt & I), and the crazies that dressed up in costumes. Let's just say I spent about the same amount of time watching rugby and people watching! Fun times!
So how do the Sevens relate to hunger? In my mind, I thought the Sevens would be a good representation of peoples hunger for attention! :) There were a number of people that dressed up in costumes today, even though the big day is tomorrow. These people were flamboyant, loud, and were totally ready for a good time. They completely got into the spirit of the event and were not inhibited at all!

They go through a lot of beer, wine, and food this weekend alone.
