Kowloon


Yesterday, I jumped on the Star Ferry for the quick ride over to Kowloon. The ferry was quite enjoyable, and for HKD 1.70, it's hardly expensive. It's a bit more "authentic" than Central, according to some - but to me it just seemed like an expanse of malls and small shops selling more trinkets. While I'm sure some of the Indian tailors who try and convince you to buy their wares make very nice shirts, being solicited on the street is just not that appealing to me; and reminds me a bit of walking down the street in Hamburg... but for a different reason...

As I already mentioned, I spent Friday stuck inside because of another typhoon (this one got up to T9). Beyond that, this week has been fairly uneventful, as I've continued to sweat in the heat and humidity.
