Dan + Mike RTW
We are in Hong Kong now, there are LOTS of shops, I don't think Mike is that keen. It is very different from Japan but we are going to experience these changes alot. It's quite sticky here, I have experienced rain like never before, it has been p****ing it down. Yesterday we got soaked I thought we'd stay dry in our cagools and was thinking how silly everybody else was with their brollies then the smile was soon wiped off my face when my waist down was drenched whilst others with brollies were alot drier. We bought a giant brollie and went inside, thankfully our hostel ( if you can call it that) had a drier and for 10HK$ they did them for us. Dried off then went out to try again, much better with brollie. Today we had a good shop I got some straighteners - hooray it was a real mission but we eventually got some in Boots?!?! I brought a bag, 2 tops, a cardi, skirt and 2 books I have found a few great shops here which I love but can't go crazy for the obvious reasons, if you were here on hols (not backpacking) it'd be great but I think a few days is enough for us. We are staying on the 13th floor of a building which seems to be lots of hostels all run by 1 reception the Internet is in someones dorm right by their bed so you feel a bit bad using it but hey, what can you do! Anyway we're off to India next......should be interesting!!!!
