Well today started off just like every other day wake up late, rush to eat, complain about lecture being too long, and then going to lecture. But today was actually extra special because we all had to pack our stuff up that day because we were leaving for Macau and Guangzhou. The Taiwanese students wouldn’t be returning to Hong Kong University so they especially had to pack early. I was so happy though because right before we left for Victoria’s peak we saw Sunnie!! I was very happy about that. We couldn’t be talk for long because we had to leave for Victoria’s peak and pack our suitcases into storage.
At first, after getting off the bus, we just walked around hong kong’s malls like always, then we went to eat in a restaurant that served burgers (haha I know it sounds funny but it’s true. By this time Tiny met up with us again and was mercilessly stalking James. It was funny and painful at the same time. She definitely scared him, regardless of what he says. We tried telling her to ease off him so he could breathe, and she did but i could see she felt very bad
about it. So then began to trek to Victoria's peak first we boarded a very short ferry boat to the other side of the city, then we began our long and strenuous trek up the mountain that is Hong Kong. Also our Taiwanese friend Tommy decided he wanted to hang out with us and see Victoria’s peak; when I asked him why he stated that he didn’t want to go shopping with all of the rest of them.
So after walking for about 20 minutes we finally made it to the mountain tram line that was supposed to take us straight to the top of the mountain.
The only problem…?
We had to wait like 2 hours in line!! That part really sucked because it was extremely hot outside as it was, and with added crowdedness of all the people waiting in line, there literally was no room t breathe!
But we made it eventually, and after a few more flights of escalators—there we were on top of the highest point in all of hong kong! The view definitely was amazing, but it was very hard for me to capture it in its entirety with my crappy camera—no—actually regardless if
my camera was good or not, you really would’ve had to be there to really enjoy the view.
After Victoria’s peak we began our decent back down the hill, which was very scary in itself, the only thing keeping us from falling to our death was a cable holding the tram. Anyways after we reached the ground some other people invited me to a night club in the bar district of Hong Kong, where we all partied it up! It was SOOO much fun, although I do believe the music could’ve been better. One of us ended up getting completely wasted to the point he couldn’t remember what he did that night. If it wasn’t for Tommy, Tiffany, and Justin, he honestly would’ve been dead on a street somewhere. It actually sucked for the people who got drunk that night because we had to get up early for Macau the next day.
