Hong Kong, Day 1 – Picture Spam
For some reason I have about 100 photos of random houses all over Hong Kong, so I decided to share;).
The air pollution levels over here are amazing. When I arrived I thought this was fog, but then I was told it is actually smog. In this day and age…
Space is so limited trees cling to steep cliffs.
I went to the tea museum on the left and then the tea house. I ordered some yellow tea. They didn’t give me a tea pot or even a strainer. Instead I poured water into the white cup and used the lid to hold back the tea leaves. The tea went into the little glass cup. It was a new way to drink tea for me;).
Hong Kong Park is a total oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. Beautifully arranged with lots of water features and places to sit.
The views from Victoria Peak are beautiful, but the trip up was an adventure. Imagine yourself in a double-decker bus driven by a Michael Schuhmacher wannabe, at the top, at the window, going along twisty-twirly roads. Sometimes there was nothing between me and the drop but clear glass. Talk about getting the heart rate up;).
That’s it for day 1. I will try and share more as and when I can.
