Brought from Germany

"Vita activa", by Hannah Arendt; "Katechismus der katholischen Kirche (Kompendium)". "Vom Wasser", by John von Düffel. A Dumont travel guide to Sicily and a Michelin map. "Schemelli-Gesang-Buch", by Bach, and "Deutsche Arien", by Händel (texts by Brockes). Also, I subscribed (again) to c't, the computer and electronics magazine.

Adopt a dog?

How about adopting a dog, or maybe fostering one? HKDR and SPCA seem good places to start; both organisations offer plenty of useful information on their websites, as does the relevant department of the HK government. Fostering a dog just might be the perfect thing to do: we could help a dog that needs extra care, and we aren't quite sure about how long we'll stay in HK.
