See you in a few hours

We are out to dinner. I have time to blog; my sister wants to stay here all night. And we might need a full five hours to sample all the stuff they have here.... Good thing I brought clothes with elastic waistbands :-)

In good health

There's a medicine shop across the road. They've got this one on display. When I asked if it was plant or animal, they told me half&half. I will go back tomorrow and find out what it's good for....

The selfie stick-less sister

Today we do Victoria Peak. This is not entirely without risks. Having witnessed how they fix the tracks in between trams we were squashed to a pulp as fierce tourists showed no mercy in the battle of Getting a Window Seat. More pics to follow, but we made it to the top and successfully navigated the forest of selfie sticks without getting poked (much) 😊

My car is disastrously under-decorated

The Chinese New Year is approaching. The year of the goat is just around the corner. This may or may not be the inspiration for these cars...

We have been shopping for food. The fish did not come home with us, but a giant Happy New Year apple did

Airport vignette II

Complimentary literature at the gate. When I get home I'll be so slim you won't be able to recognise me....

PS "Schlank-Trick" is on the list of new favourite words. Obviously.

I was up before 4AM this morning

I've had a latte and a bagel with salmon and cream cheese

And the lady in the chair next to me is reading a book with the title "Winter Kartoffel Knödel"

...and I'm booked on a plane to the Far East. Things could be worse. Welcome back to the blog :-)
