Sunday in HK
5 October 09
We farewelled Natalie this morning, who was catching a bus to Shenzhen, which is a just a couple of hours away but part of mainland China. (Internal flights within mainland China are cheaper than flying directly to HK.)
To get to church, we needed to take two taxis, although you may think that taking a taxi is a straight-forward method of transport. Not in HK.
In the afternoon, Renee and I walked to their local supermarket where we spent almost an hour browsing the shelves, discussing food options, prices and issues of availability. It was interesting to see what was available and to wonder where we could source other “basic” food items like minced beef, chicken fillets and sour cream.
Our analysis of the supermarket given us a list of things to look for as we travel around HK together. We plan to visit the local market where perhaps there will be more meat options. (Or maybe we’ll just find more exotic meat options.)
