Scaramouchine feels at home in the multicultural environment of Hong Kong. Scaramouchine is a Vancouverite and feels that Hong Kong is like Vancouver on steroids. Like Vancouver, Hong Kong is a former member of the British commonwealth and, therefore, is host to a mix of cultures. Geographically, both cities have a deep harbour with blue water surrounded by tall mountains. Hong Kong, however, is big and tall and over the top. The weather is incredibly humid and the air smells, not of rain and forest, but of incense and dim sum.
