Journey to Hong Kong and Macau #1

I've been late with this post mainly because my most of my photographs didn't turn-out all so well.

This past August, I went on a trip to Hong Kong for a few days in order to meet-up with a friend of mine (Vince) who happened to be visiting with his wife and daughter. It was a short trip, but I like Hong Kong a lot (this would be my third time there) and this was a chance for me to do something I'd failed mightily to do in the past: visit Macau.

The last time I was in Hong Kong (outside the airport, I mean) was in 1998. I was coming back from an internship in Shenzhen. Had I altered my schedule a bit, I probably could have ridden the ferry over to Macau, but I decided to save time and money by not doing going through with it. Ever since, I've sort of regretted making that call.

Anyway, back in August, I arrived at Chek Lap Kok airport, took the train to Central Hong Kong island and checked in to my hotel.

I spent much of the afternoon walking around Central.

The next morning, I made my way to the ferry terminal, got in line and boarded the Macau-bound catamaran. The voyage lasted about an hour and it delivered me to the Macau ferry terminal.

What happened next? That'll have to wait until the next entry...
