Well I’m back form an eventful trip to Hong Kong and my NOW is to sift through the hundreds of emails that I didn’t answer whilst I was on holiday. Of course there’s also the 1000’s of photographs I took as well to be looked at, but maybe not quite NOW. They can wait until after Christmas. But there again…….
On previous trips to Hong Kong it’s been about the sights and sounds. The view from the Peak, Victoria Harbour at night, Kowloon City streets all lit up. Been there, done that, taken the photographs. This trip I wanted to concentrate on the people. Walk down just about any main street in Hong Kong and you will find street stalls selling tasty snacks. They’re popular and at night as people finish work you can find them queuing at the more popular stalls.
Another place I wanted to visit this trip was the Jade Market. Stall after stall with pieces of Jade, although sometimes I wasn’t so sure. But it’s fun to bargain.
I said it was about the people this trip but one place recommended was the Chi Lin Nunnery. A haven of peace and tranquillity in an otherwise busy surroundings. I spent hours here walking around the buildings and gardens.
This is just a short one and as we are now deep in the holiday season it may be a couple of days before I manage to get anything else down
