More great things to see in Hong Kong
On a hot Saturday in Hong Kong, my friend Naomi and I took the free shuttle from our hotel to Central to meet another friend, Raegan who was coming in from Guangzhou on the train. We found a nice little bar to grab a drink and get out of the heat which allowed us all to catch up especially with Raegan as I had not seen her for some time.We then decided to take a walk along Hollywood Road checking out some of the antiques (overpriced) and also some of the street art along the way.Hong Kong has such lovely old streets and bars and we walked past one in particular with Chinese umbrellas hanging from the ceiling and waiters wearing traditional Chinese costumes.I was able to get a good shot of one of the waiters taking his break…We found a lovely little tapas restaurant for lunch where the food was really good. Lots of vegetarian options and both friends were happy to eat mostly vegetable dishes but I forgot to take photos. After a fabulous afternoon we went back to Central to the shops before Raegan had to take the MTR over to Kowloon for the train back to Guangzhou.
I did take some photos though of the wonderful buildings of Hong Kong, on our way back to the hotel; some colourful, some with washing drying on a clothes line from a tiny balcony…Some shiny and new…Some very old…And one particular building reminding me of the Flatiron building in New York.I will always love the busy streets of Hong Kong; stores open until late with Chinese signs selling everything from household goods to fresh vegetables and meat and dried seafood.And whilst not a building, there is also the Hong Kong Eye…smaller than some others and although we did not take a ride, I can imagine the views are spectacular.Another great day in Hong Kong.
