Re: it's raining in Hong Kong

It's currently raining like crazy here in Hong Kong, so Julie and I are hanging out at the library waiting for it to die down a bit. Just walking from the MTR to the City Hall Library resulted in my legs and feet getting s-o-a-k-e-d. Thank goodness I picked up a little umbrella at the Fa Yuen Street market we checked out yesterday.

We have figured out what the mystery charges on our food bills are all about, apparently it's common practice here for restaurants to bring things to your table like tea and snacks and then just charge you for them.
there are markets for everything and the variety is astounding

Wednesday afternoon we went to Victoria park and walked around a bit. We happened to walk by a vegetarian take-out place so we got some delicious rolls of some sort. Later, we ended up taking the tram up to The Peak. There wasn't much of a view due to a heavy heavy fog, but that didn't stop me from taking a lot of pictures of fog. We ended up walking back down, and passed through the Zoological and Botanical gardens on the way down, where we saw a jaguar and some nice plants. We saw signs for an escalator and wanted to take it down, but we didn't end up finding it. However, I read in the Hong Kong Walks guide that this escalator only runs up after 10:30am, so we wouldn't have been able to use it anyway. The Hong Kong Walks book (free from Tourist Info booth) is pretty great, Ernest recommended I pick it up but I didn't until yesterday. It's too bad because there is a lot of great stuff in there that would have been useful to us. If the rain dies down soon, we will plan on walking around the central district this afternoon and checking out the escalator (longest covered one in the world!).
