Hong Kong

We flew from London to Hong Kong for 4 nights. After the crispness and coolness of Europe the weather was very humid. The next day the temp dropped to 23 and the Hong Kong locals were out and about in coats, scarves and beanies. We took a day tour to Macau because on our previous visits hadn't been there. The opulence of the casinos, the locals sitting there mesmerized by the flashing lights and the large exchanges of cash, was a little scary.
The things you see!!! I gather it was advertising for a seafood restaurant. If not, it must have fallen from the sky and landed on the taxi.
We caught the Hop On Hop Off bus and did the 3 different tours around Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Hadn't been to the Jumbo Floating Restaurant in Aberdeen since 1981, can honestly say it hasn't changed.
Hong Kong by night from the top of the bus. The Christmas lights were on all the skyscrapers and it was only early November.
This elderly gentleman was happily fishing off his little polystyrene pontoon in Aberdeen Harbour. Our hop on hop off ticket gave us a Sanpam ride and I noticed him as we went past.
