Fourth day in Hong Kong. Today we went to see the Buddha and had ride on Peak tram. Both quite scary experiences. Firstly the peak tram, it is pretty much normal tram only it goes in 45 degree which bit scary as it is few hundredths years old, but if you survive the journey, you'll will be very pleased with the outcome as you get to have a look on the whole Hong Kong and Kowloon and surrounding areas from almost the highest point possible. It was about 13 o'clock when decided to head for lunch these time in " proper " restaurant as suggested by my friend we went to area called lan kwai fong as here most of the " westerners " :-) go and it was very good choice as nothing against the other place we went last night, but according to Lucy the pork she ordered apparently didn't taste like " pork " I will stop the speculation now, but I had quick peek to the kitchen and ................... No didn't see anything bad, but one of the chef recommended meal was baby pidgin ???? No this time we went for something we could go wrong with. Lucy had sweet and sour chicken and I had grilled squid with rice. Both meals were delicious, then we headed to get myself stuff and man was I disappointed , all I wanted was a battery for my camcorder and some 1.8" zif to usb caddy and to find them I spent like 2 hours, I thought this place would be packed with this kind of stuff, but as it turns out most of the stuff are " normal " pc stuff and a lots of Wii, xbox, psp, ds etc accessories. Anyway after 2 hours we left the place and went to see the Buddha and a big one, actually is the biggest in the world. To be frank the ride to get there was more exciting than the Buddha himself as today was very windy and the only way to get there was this 30min long cable car journey about 30-50m above the landscape, if you add strong wind you know why the journey was exciting. After seeing the Buddha and forcing the ride employee to let us on ride back as the last cabin was at 6 pm and we turned up about one minute past that, after a little bit of argument they let us and we had a pleasant ride with bunch of the employees. One small thing I have lost my daily pass for the MTR ( the tube here ), so I had to buy myself one way ticket ( as we thought this was our last day here ) , but fortunately our all day tickets expires today, so I didn't loose that much. As soon as we arrived home we have found out that we are staying here two more nights,so tomorrow we will be going to see the Ocean Park, so come back for some details.
Ctvrty den v Hong Kongu. Dnes jsme si vyjeli na vylet podivat se na Buddhu a na Peak tram. Oba vylety byly velmi zazivne a trochu desive . Peak tram je v podstane normalni salina ( tramvaj pro nehanaky ;-) ktera vas vyveze v uhlu 45 stupnu na jeden z nejvyssich vrcholku Hong Kongu odkud jsi jde odfotit skoro cely Hong Kong a Kowloon. Okolo 13 jsme se rozhodli zajit nekam na " normalni " obed muj kamos mi doporucil lan kwai fong kam chodi vetsina "vychodnaru " a rada to byla velice dobra, nic proti tomu mistu kde jsme byli minulou noc ale Lucka si objednala nejake veprove s nudlemi a podle jejiho nazoru to jako " veprove " moc nechutnalo, no neodvazuji se spekulovat co to mohlo byt ale nahledl jsem do kuchyne a …......... ne nic hruzneho jsem tam nevidel ;-) ale specialita sefkuchare byla holubi mladata. Tak jsme se dnes rozhodli pro neco co se snad nedalo zkazit nebo zamaskovat za neco jineho :-) . Lucka mela kuraci ve sladko kysele omacce a ja si dal grilovanou chobotnici s rizi. Oboje bylo velmi chutne. Pak jsme vyrazili na shopping potreboval jsem baterku do kamery a ramecek na 1.8" zif hdd , a kupodivu oboje mi trvalo skoro dve hodiny najit, ja myslel ze toho tu budou kopy a trocha jsem se mylil, pocitacovych veci tu je kupy ale vetsina klasicke veci a pak hodne veci na wii , xbox, ds, psp atd. Pote jsme vyrazili za Buddhou a docela velkym, teda nejvetsim sveho druhu na svete. Ale abych rekl pravdu vice me nadchla cesta k nemu nez on sam.Jelikoz dnes bylo velmi vetrno a jedina cesta k nemu byla asi 30min cesta kabinovou lanovkou asi 30-50m nad zemi + ten vitr a uz asi nemusim povidat dal proc jsem si to uzil ja :-). Po shlednuti Buddhy a trosku hadky s personalem ktery nas odmitl pustit to kabiny jelikoz posledni mel byt 18:00 a mi tam dosli 18:01 nakonec jsme si nase misto v kabince vybojovali, takze jsme meli prijemnou cestu s kopou zamestnancu, kteri meli hroznou srandu z toho kdyz se kabina trochu vic zahejbala. Posledni moje dnesni malickost ztratil jsem muj celodenni listek na MTR ( metro ), tak jsem musel koupit jednosmerny listek domu ( jelikoz jsme byli presvedceni ze je to nas posledni den tak jsem nad tim nejak nepozastavoval ) stejne ten listek dnes prochazel tak jsem na tom moc netralil. Ale jakmile jsme se dostali na hotel tak jsme zjistili ze tu jsme jeste dve noci , takze zitra pujde do oceanskeho parku, takze zase prijdte za den ci dva pro nejake podrobnosti.
