I'm inviting you to view a lot of our photos and read about our trip. For me, blogging is a wonderful way of keeping historical records for myself! I'm surprised at how useful my writings and photos can be as I try to keep track of the happenings of my life.
Hong Kong: three days to adjust to a time change and see this world class city.
Hong Kong is home to the world's tallest building. On a days, such as we had, of fog and rain the skyscrapers are endless. Throughout our travels we saw fantastic landscaping, topiaries and bonsai.
And even in this city of over seven million, we found a lovely, quiet, and nearly deserted spot to escape some of the city's exuberance.
Hong Kong is well known for it's food and shopping. Our first morning, I ordered a typical Hong Kong breakfast--a bowl of noodles is served with 2 fried eggs and a side plate of sausage and toast.

One of the full days we had in Hong Kong, we decided to see some of the sites Hong Kong is well known for. We started out early to hit Flower Market Road.
