Today we have had a slow morning, since we were going up to Victoria Peak for sunset we decided to sleep in.. Or Arild did... Since I fell asleep around 2200 yesterday, I woke up at 0700 bright awake. I got up, updated my blog and Arild slept till about 0930. We had dim sum for breakfast, which was good :) For those of you out there dim sum is like tapas ;) Or for you who don't know what tapas is, tapas is various small dishes where you normally order more than one. It's a good way to get to taste different things :)

We took the MRT to HK island before finding the bus to Stanley. The bus took us about an hour each way, and we passed Repulse Bay on the way to Stanley. The beach there is really nice, and we were both sure that this is the holiday place of HK. In Stanley we walked around in the market where we bought some paintings for our apartment, and some other small items:) This market was sooo much better than the temple street marked here in Kowloon. The Kowloon market is more touristy with a lot of small useless stuff, while the market in Stanley had loads of useful things.

We took the bus back and headed up to the Peak. We took the tram up which was a bit fun, it went up a pretty steep hill. Up at top you hade the choice to buy a ticket to go up to the observation deck which we didn't. Instead we took the Peak Circle walk, a walk about 3km long. It was a nice walk around with a nice view. And HK was more amazing:)

Before heading back down we ate dinner at Bubba Gump... We had some beer cooked shrimps as a starter and I had an awfull lemony pasta as main. The sauce was juuust lemon.. Wonder if anyone actually enjoys that one...

We headed back down after dinner, back to our hotel. Trying to look up some hotels in Vietnam.
Tomorrow we are going to Ocean Park and to a huge floating restaurant...
