Hong Kong – The Final Frontier
So we have come to our final day here in Hong Kong. After the better part of a week exploring and traveling around here, I’m just beginning to get acclimated–and now it’s time to leave. Such is the nature of short travels, I guess. But I can definitely say that I have enjoyed my time here, and definitely will come back again. After our wanderings around the city I now have a good sense of how to get around the city, use the MTR and tram system, and what places to visit next time. Plus a few places I would go back to again, like the Po Lin Monastery in Kowloon and the Big Buddha on Lantau.
Here’s the latest photo set from the past 2 days, as well as 2 of my favorites, the temple in Kowloon and monastery in Lantau.
So now we begin the second leg of our journey, the train from Kowloon to Beijing, which will take about 23 hours. We’ll spend about 2 days there, and then head to Shanghai. I’ll spend a few more days there, then head to Kunming on June 13 for the start of our ICKCBI program. So hopefully everything will go smoothly and in another day I will be in Beijing and the Chinese mainland.
Until next time…”The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly”
