Early Morning Walk

Flying to Asia for me is a 24-hour process from the time I leave my house in the morning until I get to the hotel in Hong Kong. As much as I try to "adjust" on the way over I still sleep poorly the first night in country.

One of my favorite things to do in Hong Kong is to get up early and walk along the harbour. Nothing in HK opens until 10 AM, so the city is still pretty quiet.

I took this picture one morning as we were heading over to the ferry terminal. I love the classic Old World style of the sampan in the foreground, very bright in color, with the hazy New World background of the Hong Kong Island side.

The large round building to the right of the boat is the Hong Kong Convention Center, where an amazing amount of the world's business gets conducted at trade fairs and conventions.

On the Road Again...

I am sitting in Incheon International Airport (Seoul, South Korea) getting ready for my connecting flight to Hong Kong. Tomorrow I will get on a high-speed catamaran-style ferry and enter in to Mainland China.

As some of you may have read in a previous post Banned in China, once I am behind the Rice Curtain I will not be able to post, read, or view blogs. Due to their nature, blogs are an area that the Communist goverment of China has no desire to allow their people access to.

I am hoping to do a few exciting things while on this trip, including golfing at a world class golf resort in Kunming, China. Hopefully when I return to the world of uncensored bloggism I will have new stories to tell and more pictures to show. Until then, swing by Mommy Matters and tell Christine how glad we are to have her back to blogging.
