Saturday, March 24, 2007

Saturday was all about staying awake to adjust to the time. First we went to Victoria's Peak, the highest point in Hong Kong. Luckily, we both took dramamine before leaving because it was quite a curvy road and the buses seemed to like to see how close they could get to each other before deciding which one should brake first. It was quite foggy so we didn't get the view that we were hoping for. After leaving the peak, we headed to Aberdeen fisherman village and rode on a Sampan (boat). It was fun as we rode around and saw all of the houseboats of the fisherman. Some of them never go on dry land. They live on the houseboat and then taking the fishing boat out for a living. Our navigator kept yelling "balance" and ate squid out of a bucket. After that we went to a very swanky jewelry factory where we window shopped and then onto Stanley Market where bartering could be done. One particular store had quite a large stock of Disney Princess dresses. After the busy morning we ate dim sum for lunch. Then it was a VERY big struggle to stay awake in the afternoon but we persevered with Starbucks coffee, Sudoku, and AXN (an American channel). Finally, after it was dark out we decided it was okay to go to bed.
