We are flying onto Vietnam tomorrow and I'm looking forward to things being cheap again after a week or so in Hong Kong.
You are prob saying "Why do you need a rest from a year long holiday, you lazy ungrateful nob" And i would prob be saying the same..... but getting up early and cramming in loads of sights and activities can take it out of you :)
The time we spent in Hong Kong was spent in Chunking mansions... i mentioned this before but I'm not sure if i mentioned that it is nothing like a mansion, and should have been called Chunking Flats or something....some good Indian food though and that is what we have been living on in HK as its cheap and a round trip of 10 Min's to pick up the food and be back in the bedroom ...convenient :) Strangely i get a homely feel from the mansion and have really enjoyed staying here....good job its cheap.... you can view pics of it here and also read a little more about it if you like : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chungking_Mansions
I have stocked up on books.... now have 5 in my bag ready to read in SE Asia...apparently its difficult to find books...not sure if this is true, but I'm well stocked anyways. Today we visited the zoo and botanical gardens... i stood mesmorised by the Gibbons for an hour or so....but didn't take any pictures as no one wants to see an animal in a cage!
Sooo looking forward to SE Asia and will hopefully be meeting up with some friends we have met along the way and some friends from before we left :) ....and maybe some family :)
Recently read Strike Back by Chris Ryan - He was one of the guys who accompanied Andy Mcnab during Bravo Two Zero.... his book was ok and kept me reading but didn't really do anything for me after Bravo Two Zero.
Also tried to read a book about Human Errors but got bored :)
You can see all the HK photos in the usual place:
Love to all x
