Second and Last Day in Hong Kong

Well it's been an awesome time in Hong Kong with Ivan, he has been a superb tour guide. Ivan we can't thank you enough you truly are a legend. We started our last day in Hong Kong by visiting the Australia dairy Company (below) where we had a very good breakfast. Here you will be seated wherever there is room due to the place's popularity even if it means sitting next to a group of complete strangers. We also tried what is known in Hong Kong as "Milky Tea". A drink consisting of a mix of coffee and tea, which was peculiar but quite nice.

During the day we also visited the longest succession of elevators in the world. I don't know the exact details of the length, etc. but it climbs pretty high and far (photo of it will be on Facebook). We also visited the Peak of Hong Kong via the cable car, below is a photo taken from inside the cable car and also a photo of the cable car. We then searched around Hong Kong for a midi-keyboard (google it) but could not find one that was light enough for travel and also good enough. We also visited McDonalds in the evening, which is so much better than NZ Maccas in the range and pricing of the food. Finally we went back to the hotel and got our luggage and left on the shuttle to the airport, not before saying goodbye to Ivan and getting a photo of the three of us outside the hotel. This all took place on 11th of Jan, I had actually been typing all this at HK airport as I was boarding the plane because they have free unlimited wifi, not like NZ Maccas 50mb offering. Unfortunately I got cut off from the wifi just before I could post this blog entry, and have not had the time or energy to do it before today, currently I am typing this sitting in Nairobi, Kenya. More about that in the next post.
