12 Days, 3 Countries, Different Planets


I recently travelled to the Google offices in Japan, Hong Kong and India. Here are a few Nexus snaps taken along the way. I'm not about to write a travel essay but it was interesting to see quite how mannered and controlled Tokyo was - no one will ever tell you you are wrong even if you really are very very wrong. (Culturally, linguistically and probably creatively).
In Tokyo everything is behind glass, behind screens, or behind fixed miles; in Hong Kong there is still the glass but all the guts are on the street, in the pavement shouting and noisy, drunken and decorous side by side the English expats and the Chinese expats; in Mumbai everything is on the streets, the toilets, the houses, the people, the dogs, the cats, rich and poor and it feels unbelievably fluid and fast and vibrant.
Not sure which I preferred I genuinely liked all of them in their own way and can't wait to get back (and I'm not just saying that).
