Saturday was the last day of our trip. We enjoyed a nice buffet breakfast at the hotel and then headed to the Ferry to Hong Kong Island. It takes about 10 minutes to cross to the other side from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island. It’s only about 50 cents to cross and it’s fun to see the skyscrapers. It was a very cloudy and rainy day but we still had fun. We took the tram to the top of Victoria Peak, from here you have a great view of the Hong Kong skyline. There are restaurants and shops at the top so we walked around for a bit. It’s very pretty and green up here, very nice. While we waited in line for the tram down Allden enjoyed running up and down the ramp and making the people smile. We took some nice pictures and had lunch then headed down. We walked through the Hong Kong Park, it was a nice getaway from the hubbub of the city. Allden enjoyed looking at the fish and turtles in the pond and the sound of the waterfall.Then took the ferry back and headed out to the market for some more shopping. It started pouring but we ducked under a store overhang until it slowed down. We shopped and bartered a lot, the prices here are not always cheaper than the U.S. For example Brett asked the price of a camera the one that he liked was $200 in the U.S . and here they wanted $400 for it! So it’s not a good place to buy electronics. I’m a bargain shopper at home as it is, so I was hoping for some really good bargains here but there weren’t as many as I had hoped for. They always throw out a really high price and then we throw a low price and then they get out their calculator and we haggle the price until we either walk away or we settle. Brett got some ties, shirts and a belt and we got the girls a couple little Chinese outfits. Then we found a Pizza Hut, that sounded so good after seeing nothing but Chinese food but the line is out the door and down the street, so we passed on that one. We found a California Pizza kitchen with a huge line of people so we ordered some pizza to go. We enjoyed it in our hotel room with our own music and no crowds. I really hate all the crowds of people everywhere and would never enjoy living in a big city like this. We didn’t get our fill of shopping yet so we headed out again for a bit more shopping to end the night in Hong Kong. We really had an enjoyable trip and lots of memorable experiences.
Sunday morning we headed to the airport for a very long long flight home. Luckily this time I had Brett here to help. We were excited to get home and see the girls, we did miss them but this trip would not have been too much fun for them, I’m sure they would have got a lot of attention just like Allden. I think the people must have thought it was good luck to touch him or something because hundreds of people must have touched him! We couldn’t hardly walk down the street without someone stopping to touch him or smile at him or ask how old he was. It was a fun trip!
