Hong Kong to London
Two days in Hong Kong was of course not enough. Lots of walking/eating. While there's a million shops and flashy tourist spots, it's not hard to find street life and food. Downtown Kowloon where we stayed is a mad jumble of shops, signs and traffic.
Congee (rice porridge) for breakfast
Pork buns, flaky pastries and custard tarts for lunch
Duck and seafood for dinner
The best was - mussels in black bean sauce.
We wished for friends to be here so we could order lots more dishes!
The landscape is surreal - science fiction - wild mountains surrounded by water, studded with skyscrapers.
Sea eagles constantly swoop over the harbour.
Now we're in London at last, after a 12 hour flight. Met Bob's family and celebrated with champagne and duty-free whisky. Feeling a little dazed this morning.
Love to all friends who visit here!
