After another encounter with the extremely unpleasant CDG Airport after the 2 hour flight from Budapest and a 12hour flight from ther to HK that turned into a 13hour flight due to thunderstorms around Hong Kong we managed to touchdown in the wet SAR of Hong Kong.
We discovered that the Tin Hau Temple is just behind our hotel and I poped in to meet some of the locals.
It stopped raining for a couple of hours while we visited the Temple Street night markets and had a very nice dinner at a HK version of a kerbside cafe.
On Monday we visited Ocean Park an over the top ocean theme super kitch amusement park with continuous bosa-nova music playing around the entire the park that drives you insane after a few hours. There is a spectacular cable car ride there, and a couple of nice aquariums, but it was raining pretty much all the time so the crazy roller coaster and other wild rides were not that inviting.
Tomorrow, rian, hail or shine (not very likely!) we're off to Macau for the day.
