Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

We spent two days in one of our favorite cities in the world. We arrived at night and were docked in time to experience the nightly colored laser light show. Laser lights are installed on the tops of buildings and all the buildings in the whole harbor are lit up. Truly spectacular!

There was a special event of the Rising Dragon for world travelers at the Four Seasons Hotel which included cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and dinner with a Chinese acrobatic and dance show. The color theme was black and red. We are both dragons in the Chinese astrolgical calendar. The dragon stands for power, energy and wealth.

We continue to learn from the enrichment lectures on board. On at sea days there are at least two. For example, today we attended one on the history of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos from the 19th century until now. Also, the one-time CBS news reporter, Morton Dean, shared his experiences on the ground during the Vietnam war, including news clips of him reporting from Viet Nam at the time.
