So here I’m in Hong Kong after 35 years, I can’t say that it has changed that much …. maybe in height. Some new amazing buildings, bridges and a fantastic new airport. The atmosphere is the same today as it was in 1978-79, at least for me as a very happy visitor.
But I miss the old “Poor Man’s Nightclub” at the Victoria Harbor.
The whole Victoria Harbor area is under massive construction and of course our hotel is in the middle of it, but we aren’t going to give them a hand.
We was on “hop on – hop off” tour yesterday, got a bit of a sun tan. We went to Stanley Market, had lunch at Murray House outside on the terrace with a wonderful view over the bay.
The dollars are rolling … and we love spending them. Shopping is only the first name of this city. Nothing has changed – only that the shopping centers has become so many and one more fantastic than the others. No shopping yet, only looking.
Easter is the biggest public holiday here …. 5 days in total, so I’m not able to buy stamps to my 78 postcards???!!!! The post offices are closed – also are banks and offices.
But it’s magical to be back!
“You can leave Hong Kong,
but it will never leave you.”
