Hong Kong Day 5

Monday October 13

Monday we woke up early for the first time. We had to check out by 10:30 and we wanted to go to Victoria Peak before we did. We took a tram up the mountain to the peak. It was so steep it felt like we were going up a roller-coster right before the big drop. But at points it was so steep that it had to stop, or practically.

It was a very windy morning as you could tell from my hair. But is was nice for our hike around the peak. We could see almost all the away around the island. It was amazing.



This was a rubber tree that was brought over from India. It was huge.



After the peak we checked out of our small room and walk around a bit until we went to the Hong Kong Art Museum. They had this amazing sculpture hanging form the ceiling that was pretty cool.

This was my favorite piece. It was 3D and went on to the floor. After I took the picture I was busted, but it was worth it for me.


After our not as luxurious flight back we caught the last bus back to Feng Yuan. We were spent and happy to sleep in our own beds.

Jess,
I didn't know you went to Hong Kong! Now you can mark that off your list! Hay Mom called and said that Sariah and Todd are driving to Oregon in a few days. I guess Todds grandfather passed away. They are coming down for the funeral! That is sad, but I am glad they are coming! It has been 2 years since I have seen her!
