Hong Kong
As you can "see," the weather was not
conducive to great pictures.
View from sampan in Aberdeen Harbor.
View from Victoria Peak.
E-mail kiosks in the mall were too slow for me!
Traditional bird market
preserved as a tourist attraction: Craftsman prepares
a porcelain bowl for attachment to a bird cage.
Hong Kong is subtropical, so the five star hotel had no heat; the attendant brought me an electric radiator that looked just like
the ones in the old Portland house where I grew up. So we ate (high tea at the Peninsula Hotel, dim sum at a floating restaurant,
a continental buffet on a dinner cruise, Italian and Thai food at local restaurants, "American" at the Hard Rock Cafe), enjoyed a
Chinese massage, and shopped (!) - taking advantage of "free" shipping from the Navy Pier.
