After we had dined at Amber, we returned to the hotel. But first, a cool photo:
Then a ride on the metro:
Then I noted in my journal that we went back to the hotel and slept for FOUR HOURS. Guess that’s jet lag for you. Then we hopped back up, and went out again. Went to Nathan Road, which is apparently a place tourists flock to. Seeing as we’re tourists, that’s also where we’re gonna go. We’re not really into pretending that we’re not tourists. We totally are. We try not to be ANNOYING tourists, sure. But we’re sure as heck not going to deny the obvious — we’re 100% tourists. We don’t live there, and we’re going there to check things out. Tourists.
But I guess we’re not super-typical, because all the shopping of Nathan Road isn’t something we’re into. I actually dislike shopping very much. That could probably be another post for another time.
Anyhoo, aside from lots of touristy shops, Nathan Road is also home to Chunking Mansions, purportedly the cheapest rent in the city, there’s about 4000 people living in that one building:
And then we kept wandering. And you know what? I have no idea what this place is. Just a cool picture with a boat in front of what I suspect is a fancy hotel:
And then we arrived at the Star Ferry. If you clicked that link, you’d know that the Star Ferry boats have been running for over 100 years, and that it affords you one of the most spectacular views of Victoria Harbour. Or, you don’t have to read that. You can just look at these next few pictures:
Honestly, I don’t think any more needs to be said. This last picture says it all.
