Hong Kong, China

I have been here many times over the years but my last two visits are recorded on my blog at https://lesliesh.wordpress.com/2010/10/19/hong-kong/   and   https://lesliesh.wordpress.com/2013/10/24/hong-kong-china/

I have not done much sightseeing but yesterday I started out with a walking tour of the Central District.  The area contains wholesale food markets and stores, some with some very strange items for sale, Chinese Medicine shops, antiques and curio stores and many restaurants and other small shops. I cut the tour short to go to the last possible Chinese painting supply shop on this trip and finally found that particular brush that has eluded me in the fifty or more shops that I went to in China.  On my way back I passed the former Supreme Court building, now the Final Court of Appeal and I used the iconic Star Ferry to cross back to Kowloon.

Today, I wandered around some more markets including the Fruit and Vegetable market.  Tomorrow I leave for home.
