Good to see you finished the run well - even enjoyed it Smile ....and are satisfied with your performance Very Happy Applause BRAVO ! CONGRATS !


Helga, it is really a joy sharing all this with you guys.

Thanks, the run really went better then I expected. Yesterday I was thinking, "Heike, this might be your first dnf (did not finish)". So I was prepared for the worst, well at least something without a pleasant ending.

Surprise, surprise, photobucket is working again.

Screenshot from my running app.



After a bit of rest I hopped on a ferry to Ma Wan or Park Island.
But before I checked out that village I needed something to eat.
Chicken, rice, soysauce and my beloved ginger oil, I had extras of these. Very Happy



Tsing Ma bridge which connects Lantau with Kowloon.



A few years ago I spent some time on Ma Wan but I never went to that abandoned village.
As you can see, weather was delightful.



Actually today is my second last day here in HK but the first time I slightly regretted not to bring my SLR with me. Nice building.



Storage room



As you can see all these building are surrounded by a fence, unfortunately. Wouldn`t it be fun to walk into these buildings?



Old Ma Wan main street. Everywhere that ?$% fence.



And another nice crab. I haven`t seen this pattern before - I think.



You tell me if you take a quick glimpse, is this a snake or a branch?



View from a Tin Hau temple towards the sea.



And my dinner. BBQ pork, scrambled eggs and rice noodles.
I already miss that food.



No idea if I can post anything tomorrow my flight goes after 11pm. or where I should go, actually. Cheung Chau is tempting, but it`s bun festival so hordes of people.

Thank you Heike, for all your efforts to keep us entertained and educated Giving a kiss Giving a kiss .

A BIG CONGRATS to you for finishing the 10K run with good results thumbright .

I can't believe time flies so fast - it's time to go back..... But don't be sad, the next time coming to HK is just around the corner Very Happy . You will be greeted with more beautiful scenery and exotic creatures. Just like the way that red legged crab, or a turtle earlier looking at you love Laughing . BTW, I guess the "tree brunch" would be a snake, judging by the way you said. But it really looks like a tree brunch Shocked We got open our eyes at all time......

Have a good rest and safe flight home Pray Waving salute flower

Helga, there is much more in running then "just" running. You get so much back. Moreover, I don`t need as much sleep when I`m in HK compared to home. I have much more energy here.
As for this time, there have been very view days I walked lass then 10k . Usually I walked between 15 and 25k per day.

Yes, they`ve built a new village and several estates on the north side of Park Island.

I thought so too about that branch. That`s what happened 2 years ago when I`ve seen my first snake, I thought it was a branch. Confused

Can you imagine, it`s the 26th day I`m in this great place again. Time really flies.

Ok, you are not bored with my report. I`m glad.

As for my last day, I wanted to go to a nice beach, smell, see and hear the water a last time BUT long lines for the ferries to Cheung Chau and Lamma. Instead I went to Tai Po. Till now I`ve been to Tai Po several times, getting off one bus and hopping on the next. But somehow I like it there.
Mostly I`ve seen this street and I wanted to see more.



Man Mo temple, declared monument.





Nice



I`ve waited for that shot, with no one around, about 20 minutes. I didn`t want to take a pic from locals praying, lighting incense or such things, that`s not my style. You see the smoke from the "fireplace" on the left where they burn paperthings and from all the incense? Imagine how I was smelling when I left the temple. Dizzy But it was worth it, I like that shot.



My brunch Laughing BBQ pork and rice, damn it was good.



Little shop, that`s the place. Friendly people.



Shop at the market at Plover Cove Road



And I`ve discovered a nice shop selling DVD and VCD. Drool In Love
Of course I`ve found something to add to my collection. Some out of print (as far as I know) goodies. The shop is for sure on my to-do-list for my next visit but then I need more time.
The gem on the right I have seen at a guy selling other stuff, watches and things. I was quite suspicious if it`s still working, but it does. Dancing



Now that`s it. Thanks to you all for your comments. It really was nice to take you with me.
When I arrived this morning at Munich airport we had 5 degrees and rain, what a huge difference to the 28 we had yesterday.
You all take care stay healthy! Pray

This is indeed an amazing shot, my sensitive friend thumbright . I'm actually a bit surprised that you were able to find a moment the no one is in the view of your camera. Lucky us to see this pic. Thanks a bunch Giving a kiss .
