Hong Kong: Day 1, The Peak


Images from my first day in Hong Kong

At and near Western Market

Andrea and I were waiting for Jay (who went to the bank) and T (who was taking a picture) on this street corner when an older Chinese gentleman came up to Andrea and asked her to read a letter. I was a little jet-lagged and thought this was something similar to the gypsy scam they having going on in Paris but Andrea started to read the letter out loud and it was a letter the man had written to a friend of his. She helped him correct a few mistakes he had. It turned out the man had a few letters and the next one she had him read to her. She helped him with his pronunciation and a little with the grammar. The man was so excited to have run into her. We joked later that he must have been walking up and down the street looking for a white person to help him with his letters. He could not have run into a better person. It was such a cool thing to experience.

  2. Yes those are crabs, and they were BIG! I think I took a black and white photo of the guy cooking them through the window. I hope it turns out.
