Hong Kong Trip — Sunday

Today was basically a free day and Sokly and I went out to Cheung Chau and then in the evening I had dinner with Carmen and John Lee who were part of our parish community in Phnom Penh before moving to Hong Kong.

This is the early morning hillside behind the Maryknoll residence in Lai Chi Kok.
We took a ferry to Cheung Chau based mainly on the ferry schedule: the ferry to that island left earlier than the ferries to other islands. Cheung Chau has an active fishing fleet based there.
Chinese people are quite superstitious and this tree on the island has become a shrine in its own right.
When it was time for lunch, we went to McDonald’s (it was cheaper than the tourist restaurants) and then ate along the waterfront. That’s Sokly at the yellow arrow.
This was the view of Central–and a junk-style sailboat–in the harbor as we returned.  Hong Kong has one of the most beautiful harbors in the world.
In the evening I ate supper with John and Carmen Lee on the 30th floor of a building in Tsim Sha Tsui. Quite a view!
This is Carmen and John as we descended underground to catch the subway.
