We only spent four days in Hong Kong. We found it to be like many large cosmopolitan cities. Some of the highlights were afternoon tea at the Peninsula Hotel, which is Hong Kong’s oldest hotel, and a trip to the nearby Po Lin Monastery to see the Tin Tan Buddha. I think the most memorable site though, was while walking to the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens, we came across a black cobra eating a frog on the sidewalk. Since the snake already had the frog half way into his mouth, I decided to be brave, and get in close for a picture, but he was scared and quick, so all I got was a blurry black line. Maybe next time.
