>Hong Kong, and we are docked in the same shopping mall, in the Children and Maternity section, right by the Toys R Us.
The thing I love most about being docked in the mall is that I discovered free 3 wifi networks. Despite all that, I didn’t have much time for web surfing.
I noticed some strange stores this morning.
The first one –
I’m not ready to step through the Pearly Gates yet!
I had noticed the women’s fashion store called “Hysteric Glamour.” I found that funny for many reasons, especially since I have just learned that the word Hysteric refers to the womb, like the word Hysterectomy.
I found the junior version of that store today:
When I took this picture the people inside the store got upset and ran out at me waving their arms. Don’t be so Hysterical, I said under my breath as I walked away.
Today I was going to meet my friend Steph, who is living somewhere in China teaching music and playing gigs. I allocated the Starbucks near the ship for the meeting point. I nursed a green tea frappucino and a ginger juice for an hour an a half, staring out the window until she arrived. The transportation system is a little crazy.
Yay, here she is!
The bamboo scaffolding amazed me. It’s strong stuff. We set off to wander Kowloon.
I took Steph on a ship tour, armed her with many goodies such as bread, vegi burgers and english books and she caught her train home.
I went and got a chinese foot massage with the time I had left. He gave me a chart so that I would know what particular part of my body he was stimulating with the pressure point on my foot. Weird. I put the chart aside, preferring not to know if he was touching my spleen, my nose or my ovaries.
