We’ll start by saying we are fine.  Hong Kong, however, is not.

There is widespread violence around the city. Both the protestors and police have escalated their tactics. Thankfully the area we are living in has not been affected too much recently.

However, all universities have been closed for the week, including Kyle’s (HK Polytechnic University). Tear gas was fired on PolyU campus on Monday, but nothing like what happened at Chinese University last night. Naomi’s school was cancelled today and tomorrow. 

We are physically safe but feeling a bit stressed, mostly because of the uncertainty and great concern for this city we love.

Here are a couple good summaries of what is happening this week in Hong Kong if you haven’t read about it.
