Ce la vie.
But this means you can look forward to a lot of fun goodies here!
I'll start with Hong Kong because we are actually in the process of planning another trip to this mega city. We visited Hong Kong in 2013. We flew in on Friday and flew out on Sunday. It was a hectic but fun trip. While in the city, we took a gondola up into the mountains to visit the Tian Tan Buddha, which is also known as The Big Buddha. I guess it's pretty obvious why:
From the top, visitors can also start to see that there is a little more to Hong Kong than the city. Even through the fog & smog, it is undeniable that the green hillsides are pretty to look at and pretty marvelous, especially considering it's via gondola travelers get to traverse them.
(as for me, I had a lot of fun getting to know The Big Buddha with my camera)
Don't mind the splotches on the gondola windows.
I don't think they had been cleaned in a while.
