Plus we had two Chinese roommates who were a source of amusement and introspection. Not that they m... Read more
This was, hands down, one of the all time best fireworks displays we've seen! Three barges blasting fireworks into the sky over Victoria Harbor, with some huge percentage of Hong Kong's 7.2 million residents packed along the coastlines watching... Read more
