Day 191 Hong Kong, People's Republic of China

Hong Kong! I love Hong Kong..... We arrived early this morning as the sun was rising. The sail into Hong Kong is one of the best, up there with Sydney and New York. It was off the ship crossing from Kowloon to Hong Kong on the Star Ferry and into a taxi to the top of Victoria Peak. You have to take advantage of clear skies in this beautiful city when you can. The view was indeed pretty good but not as good as I would like. I anxiously await the day when the Kowloon side of the Harbor is crystal clear. We left the peak via the tram and headed for the Mid level escalators and Soho. We walked the city and ran into friends here and there shopping and taking in the views for the next few hours. It was then time to go back to the ship for a quick rest, shower before we were off to the Temple Street Night Market for some shopping and scrumptious street food. I got the fried chicken wings with garlic and hot chilies.... really good and hot!!!! All in all it was a magnificent day in Hong Kong.
