Today we went on a tour guided by a local Chinese representative from our adoption agency. He took excellent care of everyone in our group. We are having a great time getting to know more people in our travel group. I believe there are ten families total receiving eleven babies (one family is getting twins).
Our first stop was windy Victoria Peak, the highest point on Hong Kong Island
Me pointing out the tram to Gary with Hong Kong in the background.
Next we went on a Sampan boat tour in the Aberdeen Fishing District
We passed a huge floating restaurant that seats over 3,000 people
Our guide said he didn't recommend eating there and it did look a lot less appealing from the back.
Intertesting juxtaposition of old and new
Bauhinia Blakeana, the National flower of Hong Kong
A cool looking wall made out of scrap lumber
Inside a 500 year old temple there is a hole in the roof...
It's purpose is to allow the sun to shine on this bonsai tree
Our tour ended with an enormous meal of dim sum. Now we are relaxing for a few hours and getting ready for our trip to Nanchang tomorrow. We are not arriving in Nanchang until 5:00 p.m. Since we will be meeting Natalie likely tomorrow evening I probably won't be able to blog until at least the next day. I promise to post as soon as we have a moment when Natalie is sleeping and we are not.
