Here's some Hong Kong photos (we've found an internet cafe!)



First impressions of Hong Kong - not looking it's best (we landed in a force 8 typhoon!)



Spent the first couple of days looking for umbrellas.







Whilst waiting for our hotel room to be ready we waited under this handy pagoda in a nearby park. The Koi Carp were huge!


We were generally knackered and disoriented at this point, and for the next two days really....







Are you feeling a bit jetlagged Jody, or was it the small crab you found in your rice, cause you look a bit weird?!











That is about an 50 storey building, with only bamboo scaffolding for it's full height! I'm not sure if it would be ok to british standards, but it withstood the typhoon.


My favourite building in Hong Kong, the HSBC building (for all you structural engineers out there!)


We'll put some more pictures up very soon, but internet connection has got really slow at moment so can't be bothered!

We've just got back from a 3 day trek in the mountains in the north of Thailand, so expect a big post soon!

Wow, it looks like you're having a great time. We're so jealous! That's a part of the world we both really want to see.

We're enjoying reading your blog, make sure you keep it up!

See you BOTH soon =o) (11 months, or 336 days of freedom left)
