Having worked in both these places several years ago, and so with friends to be visited and some new places to discover set off for two weeks of touring. It turned out that the touring could have been improved upon by taking a little longer, but all the goals were met – we enjoyed the company of friends, had fun along the way, and took plenty of photos, some of which are displayed here. Japan images will wait until the next post.
The Hong Kong skyline is truly dramatic, with the highest density of skyscrapers in the world.
Arrived in HK after 16 hours from Newark – in economy class, not too bad, still able to focus as we approached HK.
For some relaxation from the craziness of Kowloon, went over to Stanley on the Southside of the island. Visited the Pak Tai temple, built for the Taoist god “Pak Tai” by local fishermen in 1805.
Local fisherman, actually a fisherwoman, of today.
