Hong Kong day trip

Dongguan, China


The students had a day excursion yesterday to Shenzhen, so the English teachers had a day off - we had a trip to HK yesterday which was great - it was good to have a look around with someone who knows the place and do some shopping! We left straight after school on Tuesday and arrived about 3.5 hours later ...we went by bus, and had to get off and back on again to go through customs at the border, so there was a little bit of waiting around there. Tuesday night we took a stroll down to the harbour and admired the pretty lights - it was nice and cool too, so that made a nice change. We went to an Irish pub for dinner and we had an absolutely heavenly burger - real mince meat...mmm...it was soooo good.On Wednesday we toured around the city by the metro, which is very fast and very clean. Katharina remarked that it was just like the Tube in London - and it was (but much cleaner!)...they even said "mind the gap". I think we'll be doing lots more trips to HK - for the shops (they even have Marks and Spencer there) , and the restaurants, and the English bookshop.

We took some more photos, so will put them up soon.

Well, lunchtime is almost over - i have 3 classes this afternoon of Grade 5...we are going to do a song )'I can see clearly now'...so i hope it goes ok!!!

Thanks for your comments on the blog...I know some people are reading it! yay! But in the end, I guess it'll be like a travel diary for us anyway....
