Bonkers in Honkers…


Seriously, this place is cool.  I feel like a total Caribbean hillbilly – keep bumping into people and nearly getting runover and generally behaving like I’ve never set foot in a city before.  Those 4 years in London feel like an awfully long time ago!

I thought today I would share with you our first impressions of the place:

I don’t think I will ever get over that skyline.  We arrived in the city on the MTR just as dawn was breaking on Sunday morning over the never-ending Kowloon docks – was a pretty cool sight!  We swapped our regular Caribbean Sunday champagne brunch for dim sum and green tea (yum!)  at City Hall – fab food and fab chandies!  And went for a wander from Central back over to Causeway Bay, totally gobsmacked for the rest of the day – I can’t get enough of the Cantonese script on all the signs here, it just looks incredible!

So we’re off on our honeymoon today – 6 weeks has somehow grown into 8 (oops…)and I’m going to struggle to get internet access in Nepal methinks.  I think it’ll be a twice/thrice-weekly combination of here’s-one-I-made-earlier posts and random holiday pics, hope you don’t mind!

Have a great week y’all.
