Day 3: LAST BIT OF HONG KONG
After waking up and spending a good deal of time getting packed and ready to go for our next leg of the trip in Guilin (which wouldn’t be until this afternoon), we left our luggage at the hotel lobby after checking out and then took the Metro back to see Julie’s auntie.
Unlike the Summer thunderstorms in New York where the rains usually cleaned up the air and reduced the humidity, in Hong Kong, it seemed like the rain actually increased the humidity. Indeed it was a bit sticky.
By around 9am, we met up with her and then walked around in the light drizzle towards another Dim Sum restaurant. This time, it was some restaurant with a nice view of the main Hong Kong area. The skyline looked mysterious as it was shrouded in dark clouds. And even as we socialized at the table, we saw moments when it was raining buckets outside.
We spent the next couple of hours catching up over another delicious yet different dim sum meal.
By around 11am, the place was busy as we left. We killed another half hour walking around town while paying a visit to the bookstore so Julie could pick up copies of sequels to “Twilight.” Obviously, she was seriously hooked at this point after seeing the movie a few days ago on DVD.
Back at the Metro station, we said our good-byes to Julie’s auntie before taking the trains back to the hotel vicinity. There, we collected our bags, waited for the free airport shuttle, and then rode the Airport Express train back to Hong Kong Airport.
It was a rather pleasant and uneventful ride back, but our minds remained on the rainy weather and how that’d impact our Guilin experience coming up next as we awaited our domestic flight later this afternoon…
