The other side of the world…

So I promised myself I’d try to be a better blogger and actually, you know, blog from time to time. Unfortunately I’m currently jetlagged and exhausted in more or less every conceivable way. This, it seems, is what happens when your body still thinks it’s in GMT when you’re actually 8 hours ahead. As far as my circadean rhythm’s concerned, I woke up at 11pm and haven’t slept since. The good news is that I guess I still have a circadean rhythm of sorts.

I’m currently in Hong Kong for a few weeks, where I’m going to be undertaking some experimental work. This is likely to involve ultraviolet lasers. I’ll leave any physicists reading this to make up their own jokes about that being exciting! So for now, I’ll just leave you all with this picture from HKU campus, which looks rather pretty as twilight falls…

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos
