The world is my school and today I learned that they have a transport here called Ding Dings. For about half of the day today I was working on homework. Once we were done working we went on an adventure. This adventure was to find fireworks that my mom thought where meant to go off every night. After waiting at the harbor for 30 minutes we decided to go back to the apartment. While we were waiting for the fireworks we got to see all of these lit up buildings. It was sooooo beautiful. All of the buildings either had their company name lit up bright or they were decorated for New Years. On the way back home we could walk through the buildings and it was sooooo cool. What I mean by walk through the buildings is that there are tunnels that are above the ground and they connect from building to building.
In Hong Kong, one of the cool ways of transportation is a Ding Ding. Ding Dings look like small buses that move on a cable. Sadly I have not taking one yet. The Ding Dings have been running for 109 years. Now that is a lot. If you want to check and make sure I am right they started business in 1904. There are other ways to get somewhere like using the MTR. The MTR is a subway except it runs under the harbor from island to island also. They also have loads of buses here. Another transport is trams. A tram is a car that goes up the side of the mountain. Then the last way to get somewhere besides walking is by taking a ferry. The STAR ferry is the most famous one here. That is all the transportation.
One other thing that I noticed is that it is really hilly on Hong Kong Island. Hong Kong Island is like Gibraltar. Hong Kong is like Gibraltar because Gibraltar is a big rock where it is high in the middle and not high on the outside and Hong Kong is high in the middle and not high on the outside. Another thing they have in common is that they were both ruled by the UK. They also both have tunnels inside for hiding.
After a while of walking we started asking ourselves if we are going the right way. After more walking we decided that we are going the wrong way. When we found our way home we figured out that I crossed the wrong way. My 2 sisters kept on saying that it was all my fault, then I said if you knew that I went the wrong way then why did you follow me.
Well that was my day.
