Jan 27, 2005 - Hong Kong Land of smells

Hong Kong what can we say about this little gem except that if enjoy the smell off rotting fish and diesel well this is the place for you..We only spent 23.5 hours here and by the time we decided to go back to the airport and lap up the Qantas club lounge we were only to be told that "Im sorry but you are booked on Cathay flight number"All I can say Qantas should be re-named Cuntas... Besides that we had a nice time good food for really cheap not to sure if it was cat or Dog as Kate so kindly suggested half way through my Chicken Satay.....

Hi, Let's start with where we are now then I will back-track a bit. We are in Guangzhou. It's tropical, maybe 78 degrees right now. It's also a much richer and cleaner city than Chongqing. This morning we took Luan in for her physical -- an assembly line affair in a very clean set of exam rooms -- despite the speed and the sheer numbers of babies passing through -- we got luan weighed 22lbs. We also had Luan's skin looked at. She has exczema (sp?. While Sunni stopped to get some clothes for Luan, I ventured forth the perscription written...

Oct 29, 2004 - Guangzhou

We came to China via Guangzhou, and will leave again from here. We also came through Guangzhou on our way back from the trip North and when mum and Alex came to visit. Its a big dirty smoggy city with gems hidden throughout. My friend who lives here tells me to walk around with my bag on my front, because she says it is very unsafe. Many of the women walk like this. It certainly isn't as friendly as Zhanjiang but most of the time we've spent in Guangzhou has been wonderful, and on the whole, all of China feels pretty safe! Maybe I want to...

Well, waddaya know - just found free internet in a gift shop. On the 25th I had to move on from the hostel at Tai Mei Tuk because they were fully booked with scouts. I had also had about enough of the hustle of Hong Kong so decided it was time to take the leap into China. Getting through was pretty hassle free, but getting out the other side of the border terminal was a big shock from Hong Kong - chaos. There was almost no english anywhere and booming roadworks and construction everywhere, and it seemed hotter and smellier. I finally found...

Jul 11, 2004 - Terug van Hong Kong naar China

Na door Hong Kong gewandeld te hebben, de dierentuin te hebben gezien en een mooi uitzicht over de stad te hebben gehad op Victoria's Peak (waar Jackie Chan een wassen beeld heeft staan), besloten we om maar eens naar het noorden te gaan. Hong Kong is mooi, schoon en bruisend. Een heel verschil met China, waar iedereen alles op de grond gooit en vooral veel spuugt. Je mag hier niks op de grond gooien uit angst voor de verspreiding van SARS. Veel Engelsen en toen we in ee Thais restaurant gingen eten in de uitgaanswijk Wan Chai zat het...

In Kunming stappen we in het vliegtuig. Zodra de deuren open gaan dringen de Chinezen zich als kakelende, op hol geslagen kippen naar de deur. We zijn trouwens weer de enige westerlingen aan boord van de blinkende Boeing 767-300 van Yunnan Airlines. De lucht is grijs en het regent licht. Af en toe hebben we last van stevige turbulentie. als maaltijd krijgt elke passagier een pak koekjes en de veiligheids instructie film is in Manga stijl getekend. Alles wordt ook in onverstaanbaar engels omgeroepen. Wij zijn de enigen in het hele...

Nov 25, 2003 - Guangzhou

The first thing one notices about Guangzhou is that it is quite clearly a more affluent city than most other Chinese settlements. Being two hours north of Hong Kong, it reaps the rewards of existing within China's most wealthy province. Our hostel is located in a region steeped in historical conflict. Following the Opium Wars of the 19th century, Britain and France were granted a relatively small section of land on which they could base their Chinese trading operations. This area is known simply as Shamian Dao, literally translated as...
