The last hurrah
Gooly Am, it's come to an end so quickly! Thanks for the great blogs and stories and letting me share in the adventures. It appears you found some really wonderful traveling companions. I look forward to when you take me to Hong Kong! I look forward to seeing your smiling face in a couple of days! Happy Birthday Peaches!

Now I understand ...
Wow, what a GREAT blog Am! I can now understand why you had no time to check-in . What wonderful times you're having and then to make so many new friends. You really provided a great 'picture' of what you're doing. Really a great story Peaches! I get the sense you are really going to miss being in HK. You are missed here so be sure to come home! Remember you still have college to finish! :o) I'm hoping you learned how to cookup some of those delicious dishes you've been tasting. Candidly Am, I think you could be a professional traveler and write travel logs. Continued safe travels Am! Love ya ... forever and a day! Dad

Yep, pretty amazing
How did you stay on your feet that long at a beer fest? Reads like you were all on some type of reality show with the Kardashians (or whoever those girls are)! Creating wonderful memories! Love ya ... Dad

Great trip; great blog
Really enjoyed your 'blog' on your trip to the island. Looked like a beautiful day. Your travellog sure had a lot of great information. I've seen pictures of the 'Big Budda' before, yet you really brought it to life. Not sure I could have made the 250 stairs, but it looked to be very rewarding once you got to the top. Looks as though you are making lots of new friends from all over the world. You are truly a world travel. Keep having fun! Love ya ... Dad

On each adventure we go on, there is so much stuff I am learning about that it's impossible to remember it all. I come back from the events and try to write things down as soon as possible so I don't forget all the small but great things that I've experienced and learned!!!

Hey, it good to hear from you. Its amazing how much there is to do here. The program has sponsored and unsponsored events like expeditions of Hong Kong, Lantua Island and Macau and dinners, and other activities. There are also a lot of people in my program that are familiar with this area so they take us around to all the good restaurants and hot spots. I actually just got back from the horse races which is really big here. The MTR railway system and city buses can basically take you wherever you want to go in this city. And they are super clean and easy to use! Hope your summer is going good. Miss ya!

Amber, You have having a great experience! Everything seems amazing! How do you know where to go in such a huge city? Does the program offer ideas? Are you restricted from doing anything? I am happy for you!

Incredible building is right. Made me think of wearing a tux just to see the pictures. Hoping you didn't order too many of those outfits though! :o) So glad it was such an experience. Keep making it happen ... LY, Dad

Blue Skies
Hi Cutes ... hey, I actually saw some blue skies! Sure looked lile a really fun time! It's great they have tours and other excursions planned to get a 'feeling' of Hong Kong and its people. I look forward to you sharing your journal. Could be good information for more than a few college papers. And what a beautiful skyline, both during the days and the evenings. Keep having fun and learning. Safe travels!

The climate here is so different. Its been between 80 and 85 degrees but the humidity is so high!! You can't be outside for more than a minutes without sweating terribly!!! We are trying to arrange a trip to either the mainland (Beijing or Shanghai) or the Philippines or Thailand. We already have a trip to Macau planned in a couple weekends! That should be a lot of fun. Macau is considered the bigger and greater than Vegas!
19th June 2010

Umber, Sounds like you are having fun! How is the climate? Any trips outside of Hong Kong planned?

It's so fun to read your blog and see those pictures, and see that dragon boat. What fun that must be and the people in your pictures look like they are having a great time with you. You look great in your business casual! Thank you for sharing your time over there with your Grandpa and me. Lots of kisses from Grandma
