I think we left Peru on the 19th April.
It’s now mid-afternoon on the 21st and we’re currently sat in Hong Kong International Airport – in that time we’ve flown from Peru to Los Angeles, had several hours there before taking a flight from there to Hong Kong – leaving LA a littel after midnight for the 15 hour flight.
Flying east, meant we were constantly in darkness so it’s all a little surreal at the moment.
Having arrived in HK around 6am, we quickly took the opportunity to head into town and see some of the sites – only everything was still closed. Eventually we found somewhere for breakfast – a bowl of noodles and chicken, followed by toast, sausage, scrambled egg and the strongest cup of builders tea (ever) is the preferred start to the day here!
Along the way I found some great pieces of graffiti (On the wall, Hong Kong) and a couple of markets. We then took a ferry across to Kowloon Bay and wandered there for several hours – with tiredness catching up, we both went for a foot massage in what turned out to be a bit of knocking shop!
Whilst there some English guy popped up sheepishly asking whether ‘Golden Hands’ was in – she was and he was quickly shown into a soft red lit room, no doubt for a relaxing massage with a happy moment thrown in sometimes towards the end!
We’re now sat in said airport with a couple of hours to kill next stop Hanoi where we’ll be meeting up with Lisa and Jamie.
Snake-blood vodka anyone…?
