Leaving Hong Kong!

OK, finally got my flights sorted. Or NOT! Quantas cannot fly me backwards around the world so I booked my ferry and train. I’m leaving in the morning to make my way overland through China by train. It’s gonna be cool but will mean I will be on a train compressed with some Chinese folk for St Patricks day. 🙁 Oh well. It is suppsed to be an adventure. It will also mean i will be in Australia for 4 days now against my will. I have 2 free flights now though so I can go somewhere else if my milage will allow.

Anyway, went on the longest walk of my life today. By far the most interesting day in Hong Kong so far. Me and Soledad (Dont worry, shes 30 years old with 3 kids1) were going on a walking tour around the central island and district. After like 15 mins, her and her shopping pissed me off and we decided to go our own separate ways.

I made my away around so many cool places and saw so much cool stuff. I have uploaded LOTS of new photos in the Hong Kong section.

After the 4 hour walk I went to Kowloon and did the tour there. Went to the space museume, Flower market, Bird Garden and market and of course, charlies favourite place on earth , the goldfish market. So many of his friends were there. They all miss him.

Later I went to the space museume and at night I went to the island view to watch the Hong Kong city light show. They turn all the lights off in te city, play music and the lights on the buildings are all computer generated and in synch with the music the other side of the harbour! It was so cool.

Anywa, Ill write a more detailed explaination tonight when everyones in bed. Miss you all. Having a ball. Miss Sarah too much though. I love ya and miss ya babe!

I’d write a longer update but theres a queue forming behind me and I feel guilty. If you dont get an update in another few days, assume I was lost on the train in tibet somewhere.

Ciao
