is expensive - no matter what Alex says ;-)
OK - we'd just arrived from 6 weeks in Russia, Mongolia & China - which in retrospect was dirt cheap - but the drastic step up the BigMac Index was pretty hard to swallow. So we only stayed 1 night. Got to see the legendary Hong Kong skyline - which was ... legendary. Got famously conned into buying a video cam for more than we could get it for in London. Had a drink at Beirut café (Abdo, I hope when I finally get there my drinks will be cheaper!)
The China-Hong Kong border has trumped my funniest border crossing list (narrowly beating the Mozambique sand dune "stop" sign): You basically walk through a shopping mall, fill in 2 forms and see this sign:
"Please leave the country by lift"
And wham! You're in Hong Kong - which is on the lower floor, turn left at the Gucci store...
