    STANLEY!!

    November 28, 2018 in Hong Kong ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    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!)

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
