Oh my god i've been here 2 days and its soo crazy! staying in the craziest area of all! every where is soo busy lots and lots of people! went on a mission yesterday started by walking to the star ferry and stopping off in kowl00n park very peaceful lots of people doing tai chi really wanted to join in but was scared in case i would ruin the harmony. Then I saw a real life eagle in the wild the wild I tell thee! It was swooping all over shop! Got to Hong kong island and wandered around found the mid level escalators took some cool photos, then found boham strand which is an array of shops selling ginseng and other herby bits and pieces. I then got lost in some back lanes off the beaten track and got some strange looks. Eventually found what I was after the man mo temple very spiritual and incensey. So me and Jaim took part by offering some incense to the gods, came out with very stingy eyes and covered in joss stick dust but it was worth it!(see pics when i've worked out how to do it) Still getting used to the height of all the buildings getting a bad neck hehe! Found a free zoo with decent animals like crocs and jaguars not cows and deers like back home. Got the tram up to the peak and it was amazing even more real life in the wild eagles swooping all over shop! Still cant really believe i'm here my hostel is really friendly and internet is free dragon hostel mong kok right in the middle of the shopping district and markets.
gotta go xx
