Hong Kong Day 2

Used the awesome public transport system and got over to Ocean Park today - Hong Kong Island, of all places.

We saw the "Massive" Aquarium - can't remember the name.  Anyway it was big.  Then headed up the hill via awesome cable car.

The kids and me got a little wet on the water rafting thing.

Then Andrea decided to pwn us all by going on the fastest rollercoaster ride in the park.  You can see it as we approached on the cable car.

Here she is second row from the front.

Here's some of the action.  Lot's of screams :D (should've had my glasses on as it's out of focus)

Hong Kong Day 1

Got here at night and wandered the streets a bit.  Seems to come alive after dark.  Did the obligatory recce to find the 7/11.

Here's a view from the balcony.  Us in ritzy hotel, with old style digs directly opposite.  Interesting how they use bamboo for scaffolding (building right next to us is being reno'd totally covered in bamboo scaffolding 20 stories high) and also use it for plain old balconies.

Next day went for a stroll down to the Avenue Of The Stars.  Wow!  Big!
