The old ladies in the markets of Hong Kong

The crazy lines most days at the Peak Tram, the new Lamborghini Huracan and paying a visit to the Ozone Bar 118 floors up at the top of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in ICC.

This scene is played out in most of Hong Kong street markets on a daily basis, very old ladies eking out a living selling all manner of cheap basic foods from corn to radish to ginger. You cannot help but feel sorry for them and our Government needs to try much harder to make sure that our old folk have a comfortable retirement.

Mid morning on a cloudy Sunday in November and the line for the Peak Tram is over 2 hours.. most days you can easily wait for an hour and the lines are getting worse.

My advice - take a taxi to the Peak and come down on the tram (although the lines are getting worse as well coming down) you really only need to do the tram one way and going down is more fun.

It took me 2 days to notice and a few comments on my Flickr site to realise I had take images of the new super duper awesomely brilliant Lamborghini Huracan - oh my. 0 - 60mph in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 202mph.... WOW!! Go here for all my Lamborghini images

I do private walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 39 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.

Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....

I am available at very short notice, I get many last minute bookings and may well be available even if you arrive in Hong Kong without making plans! so please check my calendar, if it says I am free then I am available to do a tour!! Simply send me a message for a prompt reply

...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides, so explore this great city with one of the best tour guides in Hong Kong.

All images taken with a Sony RX 1r camera - it produces amazing images!
