Hong Kong!

Well, we made it to Hong Kong and I must say, it's a pretty crazy place here. Our flight was pretty uneventful. We got to Hong Kong around 5 p.m. and had a car from the hotel pick us up and bring us to the hotel. Our hotel is located in Kowloon which is on the northside of Victoria Harbour. After checking into our hotel, we had a light snack in the Club Lounge which is conveniently located down the hall from our room on the 36th floor. The Club Lounge offers complimentary snacks and beverages 24 hours a day with great views of Hong Kong.

After our snacks, we ventured out into Hong Kong. We first went to the Avenue of the Stars to watch the Symphony of Lights which happen every night at 8 p.m. After that, we ventured across the harbour to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. You read that right, we had Mexican food for dinner last night. They even served Sol beer! And the food was pretty darn good too.

Our hotel is really nice and it's actually located next to this huge mall that has every store you could think of. The mass transit system is great. Probably the best I've ever seen. Not that I'm an expert, but it's much more efficient and well-marked than the London, Paris, and Berlin metro systems.

Today we are going to Victoria Peak and whatever else we decide. We have to take advantage of our short time here.
