Just another day in the HK - Hong Kong, China

We headed out to Lantau Island to see the Tian Tan Buddha. We knew there was a cable car ride in store but we didn't realize it was going to be 25 minutes long. We just kept connecting from one mountain to the next. We opted for the normal cable car but you could have paid more for a completely see-through car. Can you imagine riding in a cable car a billion feet above ground and being able to see-through the floor. I think it would have been fun for five minutes but not twenty five!

The Buddha was pretty cool. We trekked up the steps for a great view of the grounds. Afterwards, we took a bus to Tai O, a small town in the area. We walked through the sleepy fishing village streets for awhile and then decided to head back to the city. That evening we took it easy and went and saw Wall Street at the cinema. Not a great movie but we sure enjoyed the caramel corn.


  1. Thinking of that crazy high tram ride makes me giggle again.

  2. I would have had a heart attack and died even without the glass floor.
