Life in Hong Kong

As promised, I wanted to share pictures from my honeymoon.  We didn’t do the usual honeymoon but rather explored Asia.  Our first stop was Hong Kong.  It is an interesting place that is a combination of metropolitan with a little something different.  The culture, atmosphere and scenery is so different from anything we have ever experienced.  It’s New York times ten with a little bit of rustic and harshness mixed all together.   Keep reading and you’ll see what I mean.
Let the market begin….

Live crabs tied up with rope.
Poor fish were still alive and some got bloat from being caught and pulled out of the water too fast. Poor fishies.
The fish market….so fun!
Turtle eggs! Wish this picture wasn’t blurry but you can’t get everything.

I’m not sure why this would be appealing to anyone.

These frogs were alive and you had to buy them by the bag.  I wanted to buy them and set them free but my husband said I couldn’t do that. Next time…I will!!!

Dried octopus and squid
The tea lady that kept selling us tea!  We didn’t know how to tell her we didn’t want anything. We left with bags of tea.

The Dalmatian looking fruit is Dragon Fruit. 
Breakfast at the W Hotel….simply amazing.  If I ate like this every morning I’d weigh 40olbs! It had a bit of everything for everyone.  I think everyone left completely stuffed.

Local lunch spot…sooooo good!

Daytime snack at the W.  Sometimes you just want classic American food when you’re in a country that has nothing but spicy soups. Not that we were complaining but sometimes you just want a bit of home.

Like everywhere in the world, Hong Kong also has gelato!

Hong Kong was a success…next came the great city of Bangkok in Thailand.
