Hey everyone - Thanks for the comments! Here's some pictures of Hong Kong. We're leaving for Shanghai this morning, and I don't really have any reason to think I'll ever be in Hong Kong again, certainly not for business. It's really a unique place, and is notable in that it has the densest population in the world. There's over 7 million people here, and everyone lives in high-rise apartments that are just jammed together one after the other. Anyway, here's some pictures:
This is a good shot of what the apartement buildings are like - the entire city is like this. It's hard to describe how dense the population is here, but it is still safe and friendly. Got to love the former British Empire!
Allen admiring a bronze of Bruce Lee on the "walk of stars" (the waterfront in the Kowloon District looks out at down town Hong Kong). Jakie Chan lives here too, though I didn't see him taking any pratfalls or running up walls, etc. (or using either of his two facial expressions!)

I tried to have the "Hong-Kong-iest" breakfast I could yesterday. The result: Fried noodles and chille sauce, scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes, hashbrowns and toast. This was one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had, and this plate turned out to be only round one... (needless to say I didn't have much lunch yesterday)
Ok, that's enough for now, see you in Shanghai!
