This year I’m leaving winter behind and traveling half way around the world to catch summer in New Zealand. A little bit of D vitamin won’t hurt.
It’s a long way to get there. I wasn’t exactly aware of that, before spending almost three days on the airports (and planes). Including 22 hours waiting time in Hong Kong. Even though this isn’t the city I would visit on purpose, I sneaked out of the airport for a few hours to explore the streets.
I love its location – next to the sea and the mountains. Some of the streets are extremely modern, especially in the night time, when walls of tall buildings change into playground of different graphics and colors. But then again, there are some streets that feel more like Asia I’m used to (Soho for example).
I usually try local dishes, but this time, I went to Nepalese restaurant to try chicken dumplings. Back in time, when I was in Indian Himalaya, I wasn’t brave enough to try it, Hong Kong seems to have a little bit higher standards (it’s expensive enough). 🙂
