More of Hong Kong

Ah...back to our hard beds again. As Mark stated yesterday, we made the decision to walk down the Peak, not realizing it was 1600 feet with steep declines. What Mark didn't say was the number of elderly people walking up to Victoria Peak. We're talking people who were in their 60's and a few brave souls who thought running up to the Peak would be fun. Yea, we thought they were crazy too. We're still feeling the pain of that decision.

Okay, so it has been a long time since I was last in Hong Kong. All of the original junks have disappeared, though a token one is around for tourists, and the deals aren't what they use to be. It seems much cleaner than I remember it as well. One of our favorite things, was to go on the doubledecker trolley cars.

We also discussed purchasing a camera in the near future, as we were going to travel to some places we may never get to again. If we were going to purchase the camera, we figured it we should purchase it in Hong Kong rather than China. We wanted to ensure that we had an international warranty. We looked at a couple of cameras and opted for the Olympus E510, which, according to my dear friend Elaine was a good choice. Of course, it had nothing to do with the fact that she has them as an account. This picture is for you, Elaine.
