Just a quick hello from Hong Kong, letting you know I arrived safe and sound in the wonderful city (or state) of Hong Kong. Staying here with my old uni-friend Shari has made it a wonderful and easy first two days of my trip. Today we went to Lantau Island, did a small hike in Mui Wo - it was sunny and bloody hot, 35 degrees, so I was just nicely sweating my ass off ;-) We saw some beautiful landscapes, small temples and the Silver cave and waterfall. Then we took the bus to Ngong Ping village and admired the Tian Tan Buddha - also known as the Giant Buddha, and yes, he was huge! - as well as the Po Lin Monastery. Two more days left here and on Sunday I'm flying to Bangkok. More excitement is on it's way..
Talk soon! Cheers, Karo
