Day 17

Kowloon, Hong Kong

I awoke around 6:30 - 7:00, thinking we'd be docking any minute. Well, we were near Hong King -- near Aberdeen, but we had to wait outside the shipping lanes for a while (during which they served breakfast) and then we "docked" in the middle of the Harbor, i.e. we dropped anchor and a ferry and dock came out to get us.

We got off the ferry somewhat north o Ocean Terminal; I and two others took the wrong bus but finally got it together and got to our respective abodes -- I finally checked into the Y (no tub!) around 11:30. Then, walking around I ran into Claus; we window shopped all afternoon and then met up again for dinner -- Mexican in Hong Kong (and not too bad). Then we met Jimmy and his girlfriend (the New Yorker and Belgian) and headed to Ned Kelly's, an Aussie bar with a great jazz band. First it was just the four from the boat, then another couple, then a foursome, etc. -- it was great. I kept thinking that these were really terrific times: interesting people in interesting places, the best of times so to speak.
