One country, Two systems

Such is the statement coming from Hong Kong about their relationship with China. Anyway, talk about wall to wall buildings. Nothing but shopping and businesses everywhere. Kind of cool, as most everyone speaks fluent English. It was better than China, where everyone just assumed I was Michael Chang and wanted to drag me out on the tennis court.

Well, Hong Kong was pretty expensive, so I was glad I did all of my hard bartering on the streets of Beijing. If you ever make it to Hong Kong, make sure you get to the top of Victoria Peak for the tourist trap view of Hong Kong. It was pretty easy getting around town via the subway. I even took a bus out to Stanley, where the rich like to play on the beach. Gosh, wish I had my bathing suit.
