Hitting the ground running (Hong Kong)




We took this picture after our morning workout and swim overlooking
Victoria Harbor



Tin Hau Temple, this lady covered her face in the photograph



Unfortunately we had to pay for subway tickets because we were too
tall.  The subway system in Hong Kong is the best I have ever used.



We have been enjoying the english on shirts over here like this
"Be Confident" fashion polo



No Smoking I will crazy



Women's toilet



View of Hong Kong from Victoria Peak, we took an awesome tram
up to the peak for this view



Kristin enjoying the view



The tram that you must take to the peak, many wealthy people have
homes at the Peak



View of south side Hong Kong Island



This stuff was great, even Kristin enjoyed it



A luxury water shop



Chinese Lou


Walking between giants



Bank of China Tower, thought to impose negative feng shui on
surrounding buildings



In all the parks, there were hordes of ladies hanging out with
each other in groups of 4-15.  We found out later that many of
these women are Indonesian and Filipino maids enjoying their
day off

 
We took the subway over to the Kowloon side, which is connected
to mainland China, this is a picture from a southern Kowloon pier


Trying to find a place for lunch



Empty subway car



Entrance to Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple in new Kowloon


Temple - the place is filled with worshipers and
fortune tellers

Thanks for reading You, sorry I am too tired to actually write tonight



Kristin and I, self timer FTW



Dragon statue - weird seeing these in their proper place



Just another commuter



From the desk in our room at sunset, Chinese junk in harbor



Zoom of Chinese junk



A protest in the streets



Closing time at booth in wet market



These ladies got pissed at us for taking a picture a second later


Taxis



SRSLY????


We are beyond tired.  We woke up very early and spent the entire day riding the subway throughout Hong Kong island and Kowloon.  I had some interesting commentary about our day, but sadly my mind is too confused with the time change and sleep deprivation to successfully articulate how amazing Hong Kong truly is.  We have a few more days to spend in this wonderful place, but tomorrow we head to China's Vegas - Macau. Wish us luck...
