Hong Kong

Oh Hong Kong. After distinctly not falling in love with mainland China, Hong Kong was exactly what we needed. We had a fantastic time, and felt like we really made the most of the few days we had. We had the pleasure of meeting one of Tom’s grandfather’s friends, John Li, who he had taught at Rugby, and who treated us to a delicious Dim-sum lunch and an incredible helicopter ride over the city and the surrounding islands. What a privilege. Thank you.

 Other memories from Hong Kong:

The races. A brilliant evening – made even better by winning enough money to make it a free night!

 Star ferry to Kowloon and the walk along the promenade. Well worth doing.

Sound of light show (distinctly underwhelming!)

The botanical gardens and zoological park – the caged primates brought out the Greenpeace in both of us.

A great night at a jazz club – a private gig (despite the guidebook suggesting everywhere would be rammed!) by the Nowhere Boys. Not remotely jazz, but still really good – and on Spotify!

Getting sunburnt at the beach. Typical.
Thank you HK, we will be back!
