    We took a trip down south today to the Victor Harbor of Hong Kong, Stanley!

    We caught the local bus via the Aberdeen Tunnel and Repulse Bay (home to a Ferrari and Tesla dealership!), and arrived just in time for morning tea - egglette (egg waffle) has become KT's favourite.

    We wandered the market, went for a beach walk (yes, there was a cache involved!) and had lunch in a backstreet noodle establishment (generous serve of mains were $5 each, compared to the waterfront where a gourmet cheese toastie was $20 at the "English pub").

    We caught the bus back to Causeway Bay (and found where all the traffic is in Hong Kong), visited Lot No 1 (the first parcel of land auctioned off by the British after the claimed the colony), and the Noonday Gun (as mentioned in Noel Coward's Mad Dogs and Englishmen).

    Street food for dinner tonight, literally! We bought pork buns, rice and other items of unknown ingredient from a small shop front and ate them on the street ☺

    Today's Tesla count: 75+ (he stopped counting!)

    Visited Stanley on a recommendation - I was told it should be a nice market. Big disappointment - lots of stores and more a touristical attraction than a market. Well, will visit tomorrow some real markets in Kowloon. Took the bus down to Stanley (with all the stops and traffic jams it took an eternity - wanted to be smart and took a taxi back to Central - took also an eternity ... Friday evening traffic jam - oh boy, I spent quite some time in buses and cars today. Last picture is the best - I had to leave the place when i saw it ....Read more

    Boah das sind aber heftige Preise, oder? Bus fahren ist manchmal ganz spannend. Einfach aus dem fenster schauen und beobachten...

    .. also es sind HK$ = durch 100 mal 14 Fränkli, also Fondue pro P. ca 30 Franken - naja, so in etwa Schwyzer Preise.

    Stanley - an der Südküste

    December 28, 2019 in Hong Kong ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Ein berühmter Markt an der Waterfront. Frische Luft mit Meerblick. Die Promenade ist erst am erwachen - nicht jeder hat Jetlag wie wir und ist am Morgen bereits mitten im Tag 😀. Generell wirkt der Stanleymarket heute Vormittag etwas verschlafen, deshalb gibt es einige coole Graffitis zu sehen, weil die Storen - oder wie man das nennen will - noch unten sind.

    Und auf einmal sind wir dann doch noch fündig geworden. Vor allem coole Souveniers kaufen wir hier, die super schöne Salatschüssel lassen wir sein, sie ist uns dann doch zu teuer. Da wir uns gerne etwas für die "Inneneinrichtung" Zuhause als Andenken aus dem Ausland kaufen, wäre dies schon ein tolles Stück. Wir haben aber bereits ein schönes gemalenes Bild "Strassenszene in Soho" am Temple Street Market gekauft.
