Hong Kong, China
OCTOBER 5-8, 2009
After our visit to Shanghai, we took the flight over to
Hong Kong. It was a semi-long and bumpy trip, not fun at
all - especially if you are a little bit scared of flying
(yes, I know, need to work on my meditation practices a
bit). Arriving into Hong Kong already felt differently from
Shanghai. Mountains, water and yes, sky scrapers of course,
but with a very unique feel and special vibe to it. We absolutely
loved it, smog could of course be less, but other than that,
a lovely city to explore.
We went to the touristy places like Victoria Peak, Aberdeen
Fishing village, took evening boat tour of the harbor, and
went out to Lantau island to see the largest bronze Buddha
in the world. We had a fantastic time with great weather
most days. What a skyline at night - one to definitely not
miss!!! Lights everywhere, your eyes and mind were stimulated
from the very beginning of the evening until they were closed
at the very end of the night. Hong Kong is a must see city!

One our way up to see the biggest bronze
Buddha in the World. Can you see it?
This is my husbands idea - really, you wouldn't
I think he wanted us to show off our Kung Fu pose.
How do we look?

Recognize this - where is James Bond? Oh,

his wave runner, you just missed him!
