Wandering around Hong Kong

Wandering around Hong Kong is a great way to see the city. To be effective, a wandering can’t really be aimless wandering. The route can be varied, but a destination or a goal is essential. In our case, the goal was usually food related.

There was also some shopping to be done. Hong Kong is one of the few places where I can find clothes in my size. It’s not easy, but at least I know they exist. Here’s my mom rushing back to let us know she found a good sale.
