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…?

It’s been an interesting few months here in South America – Buenos Aires was OK, not as cool as we thought it was but given the distance, a damn sight cooler than Sydney in Australia, at least they speak a different language and are only fifteen years behind us from a fashion point of view. Peru has been fantastic and I would certainly like to come back to this part of South America to explore – everything you’ve heard about Machu Picchu is true – it’s stunning.
We’ve met some great people whilst away, really interesting individuals and couples most of whom we’ll keep in contact with (you know who you are…) We didn’t get to see that much more but we’re grateful for the flavour we have had. Tonight’s our last night – tomorrow we fly via LA, Hong Kong before meeting our friends Lisa & Jamie (recently engaged too so it’s going to be a great few weeks with those guys!)
So, goodbye South America and…
