Life has been busy here in Hong Kong. I have school five days a week, I spend evenings searching for new places to eat or just discovering new streets. On Saturdays we’ve had trips arranged for exchange students.
Cheung Chau Island – A place that impressed me greatly. This small island has a small village with fresh seafood. Its harbor is full of fishermen’s boats. Here local people ride bikes, something I hadn’t seen yet anywhere else. Only policemen had small cars.
On the other side of the island we went through Cheung Po Tsai Cave, which is named after a Guangdong pirate of the same name. According to legend he kept his treasures there. We also discovered some cliffs and an empty beach.
Lately I’ve been visiting a few temples. Funny thing here, if you don’t have any plans it’s like: “Hey, let’s go somewhere.” “Okay where? Wanna join us to see some temples?” “Sure.”
In love with those street lights. (@Mong Kok)
Festival Walk – The biggest shopping mall I’ve seen here so far. And slightly expensive, I’d say. On the upper floors there is an ice skating rink as well.
We’ll see what my next month here is all about. Maybe more temples? Maybe some hiking? Chinese New Year is near and I’m really looking forward to it. Stay tuned!
