Great day in Hong Kong
Today we were tourists. We traveled to Hong Kong island with two other families who are adopting toddlers in China. Selam attached herself to the 12-year-ol
In the afternoon, Heidi and I braved the heat and humidity to take a walk. (I forgot what it’s like to sweat like that.) Though we could see our destination clearly, it was a very circuitous route over bridges and down alleys to get to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, which is a steep, uphill path lined with golden Buddhas in every imaginable pose. Unfortunately those photos are on Heidi’s camera so you won’t get to see them here. Heidi got additional exercise by pushing Selam’s stroller the whole way. We wisely decided to take a taxi back to the hotel.
Tomorrow, weather permitting, on to mainland China and Dian!
P.S. For Aunt Ellen: We went to a jade factory and I bought you a donut-shaped pendant.
