Hong Kong – Fall Break 2008

October 8, 2008

On our trip, we went to Hong Kong Disney….

on the rainy-est day ever!

Seriously!

Ben and I survived Space Mountain: 

And, Ben went again with Dave.  That’s the nice thing about a rainy day – NO LINES :))

The rain did stop and the next day, Ben, Nicky and I took the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbor from Hong Kong Island to the “mainland” area called Kowloon…

 where we saw the jewels of the city,

and some art.

We took a tram up a VERY steep, rainforesty hill in the middle of the city

to see an amazing view of the city and the harbor.

And we spent a lot of time in beautiful Hong Kong Park which had good points

fun steps up a tower remembering SARS,

and chicken Satay!

Best of all was watching the skyline perform a light show one night – set to music.  Incredible!

and swimming with Daddy at the hotel pool (look:  Nicky’s COLD!).

Pictures can’t begin to do this city justice.  It’s really beautiful and a wonderful place to visit.

PS  Arlene got take out chicken and rice a few times while we were gone (Singapore national dish) and was sharing it with Boo the whole time.  Boo – Happy.
