Hong Kong – First Impressions
We’re finally back from our trip to Hong Kong. We had an extraordinary time – our daughter was a perfect, if indefatigable tour guide, so we got to see quite a lot. Of course, we missed a lot, but that’s a great excuse to go back. I’m a bit disoriented today, trying to get used to doing laundry, cooking and making my own bed after two weeks of hotels (sigh)…So here are a few first impressions – I’ve got lots of drawings but there are too many to post in one lot. Watch this spot for more during the week.
We stayed in Whampoa, Kowloon in a lovely hotel on the water, and it was very close to the student residence halls at Poly U, where our daughter Claire is an exchange student. There was a bit of a mix up at first as there were two hotels with the same name very close together, and Claire went to the other one. While waiting in the lobby I had time to sketch a bit.
A quick view from the hotel lobby :
A fountain in the lobby;
A couple of elderly Chinese couples who were signing some sort of contract (I’m an unashamed people-watcher!)
