Hong Kong – First Impressions

June 2, 2007

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!)

    Amazing! Very clean, simple lines and yet you’ve captured an exotic mood!! Welcome home (even if it is to laundry, cooking, dishes etc)!!

    Glad to hear your trip was nice and that you are safely home. So sad about the lack of maid service on your return. Love the sketches and looking forward to more from your trip … also your written comments.

    These are scrumptious! I love the boat and water pics and the lush green hillside as well.
