It was off to a gloomy start when we arrived in Hong Kong. With the heavy mist and rain that shrouded the entire surroundings, making our first ever purchase on the pearl of the orient an indispensible brolly. We were almost never leaving the hotel for the next three days without it, and I must say I was almost annoyed by the constant transition from wet to dry and dry to wet again. Photo opportunities were scarce due to constant rainfall, shopping areas were limited to indoors only. Food wasn't fantastic, not forgetting to mention the fact that were cheated right under our noses. People were always rushing constantly there was hardly any "laid backness" anywhere. Streets were filled with citizens walking in every direction possible, oblivious to the crowds they had to squeeze through. Overall though, shopping was a winner, with tons of things to rumage through in buildings that hardly had a tinge of glamour on the exterior. The most interesting places to shop probably look the least interesting. I wouldn't mind having another go in Hong Kong but not with the rain again.
