The ferry ride onto the main island was cool, offering great views of Hong Kong's skyscrapers. After a couple hours of checking out some more of Hong Kong, during which Chris lost his bank card in the machine, we found a bizarre little bar selling giant beers for just under a pound - result. After a few beers and a few laughs we headed back to get changed and meet Holly.
We went on the underground to Temple Street, passing some fortune tellers and the jade market. A few excited outdoor bar owners were trying to encourage us to sing and dance with them but we declined as we were going for food. We went to a seafood restaurant and all sat around a table. It was a really sociable way to eat, all the dishes we ordered (including goose and snails) went in the middle and everyone chop sticked (with questionable ability) what they fancied from there. The snails weren't great and I took some stick for ordering them but at least we tried them.
After a good feed that was surprisingly cheap for what we had (£40 for 7 of us including beers) we paid a visit to the train spotting toilet. It was grim! Dead cockroach in the sink, uncleaned since the last millennium probably and graffiti everywhere. Suddenly our hostel toilet seemed 5 star but we were told that everyone had to experience this street toilet (they aren't all that bad).
We went to a bar for drinks where a round for 9 people came to about £8. The custom in this place was to dance on the bar and inevitably after a few more beers the four of us were up. Me and Ed met a couple of crazy Sri Lankan guys and I was offered a job in Shanghai by a little computery Chinese man called Siu Lau.
We finally returned to the hostel (by bus this time) at 3am tired and a little drunk (Owen was falling asleep standing up). After a quick skype to mimsie it was time to catch some z's!
