Causeway Bay
With our time drawing to a close in Hong Kong Anne, Ken, Darla and I decided to visit Victoria Peak again since Ken and Darla missed it the first time. It's an exciting view of a beautiful city and worth a second visit anytime.

Leaving Victoria Peak we took the Star Ferry across to Kowloon for one last look of the beautiful Hong Kong skyline across Victoria Harbor.

Anne and I
Having visited Hong Kong before Anne and I tried to recreate the magic by visiting some of the beautiful sights we had seen during our first trip. Ken's objective was to revisit every good restaurant he had eaten in before. This afternoon he was in search of a restaurant where he had an excellent Fettucini Alfredo. We walked and walked and walked along the waterfront area of Kowloon and finally found the restaurant. Unfortunately they no longer had the Fettucini Alfredo on the menu, but he substituted with something equally as good.

Having filled our gas tanks and readied ourselves for our last afternoon in Hong Kong we left the restaurant and began heading for the Star Ferry and Hong Kong Island. Our car (right) and driver were awaiting us at the door to the restaurant and it was just a short drive over to the ferry terminal. Believe that one and there's a bridge in New York I'd like to sell you. This is as close as we got to the gold Rolls Royce sitting by the hotel's entrance. Ah, it would have been a nice ride though. Unfortunately we walked!

Next stop ... Causeway Bay.

Finishing lunch our car was waiting ... only kidding!

Houseboats tied along the dock
Causeway Bay on Hong Kong Island is the best shopping district on the island. For some the shopping may be the draw but, for me, the real draw were the house boats in Causeway Bay. Here there is a large population of boat people who live their lives on the water.

Enjoy a few pictures of these boat people and their habitat. This is a side of Hong Kong that is quickly disappearing.

Doing the laundry the hard way!

Everywhere throughout Hong Kong it's apparent that this is a city with serious overcrowding issues. Large multistory apartment buildings are everywhere, but it is evident that they, too, are seriously overcrowded. But, with so little land and such a big population, there is little that can be done about the problem and fixing it would change the entire atmosphere of Hong Kong forever.

Isn't it amazing how I'm always conspicuously absent in these group pictures? Wonder why?
Our three days in Hong Kong were now at a close. It's time to say good-bye and move onto our next exciting destination ... Macau. Join us there on the next page ....
