Kowloon, Hong Kong

Back in Kowloon, I picked up my photos (no indoor pictures came out though -- I later discovered that my ISO had accidentally slipped from 100 ASA to 1,000!

I picked up my new, cool eyeglasses ordered the day before (terrific machine which could tell your prescription, contacts in or out, just by having you focus) and walked through the Peninsula Hotel -- what a snooty bunch!

I had dinner at a place called Lindy's -- very classy (and I was wearing shorts!) but a great pepper steak and good wine -- Hirshfield prints on the walls a la Sardi's, and I began wishing I was Nina Hirshfield with my name all over the world.

fter, I, Claus, and 2 Swedish girls he knew and ran into, Jimmy and his girlfriend went to Rick's Cafe for drinks -- pretty dead (were were told there was live music every night -- not true). We left rather early and said our (forever) farewells.
