The noisy let down of the american accent

The noisy let down of the american accent

I thought I was looking forward to being around English speakers again but I'm not so sure now that I've made it to Hong Kong and into an English speaking hotel.

After three weeks of being one of only three other english speakers I guess I've become so used to being the only ones that speak English. It's so strange to see and hear other Westerners, I'm not sure I like it. I actually want to go back into the middle of China where I can't hear of see them. I don't know why.

We arrived in Hong Kong and the taxi dropped us off at the Novotel. As I walked up the stairs to the reception, I could hear the sound of American accents and I understood what they were saying. Odd because I haven't understood another persons conversation in about 3 weeks. The American accents weren't the problem, it was that I understood them, that was the strange part.

It's a bit of a let down; More than I thought it would be. Actually I didn't think I would be disappointed about hearing English again. In fact I wrote a blog about how much I'm looking forward to hearing English again but now that I'm hearing it, I'm not so sure.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be
aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that
they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well
as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
