MAY 14, 13 .. FRUSTRATED BY USB PORT CHALLENGES .. THEY ARE WINNING !

I spent a LOT of time today trying .. with NO success .. to find anything even approaching an Internet Cafe.  They do not exist.  I went to the Official Tourist Bureau at the Star Ferry Terminal and several other places in my totally futile search for a computer with USB Ports that I could use to up-load photos.  The Tourist Bureau gave me sources .. I went to them .. and yes they had computers but none WITH USB PORTS.

So it appears that I will NOT be able to up-load .. at this time while I am IN Hong Kong .. nor Post any of the new photos I am taking here in Hong Kong.  I will plan to do so when I am back in the United States.

FOR THE VERY LIFE OF ME .. I can not .. and I do not .. recall what I did previously here in Hong Kong.

This could very well be a new situation.  China and its security is an emerging project.  One I honor .. there is a lot going on here and those in-the-know may very well NOT want uncensored photos originating from here going all-over-the-world.

The photos I just posted (14 MAY 2013) on Blogspot are phenomenal .. they are the VERY BEST I CAN DO .. now or ever .. the best I can ever do is to equal them.

AND YES!  I really miss having the ability to up-load and Post new photos.

I also miss less expensive computer time.  Eight some US Dollars ($8) an hour will ‘eat-me-up’ in no time.  In India a five hour day was routine.

Lots and lots going on.  Just being in Hong Kong is such a grand adventure.  I think I am beginning to come-down from the trip.  I slept like-the-dead for four (4+) or so hours this afternoon and I did NOT get-to-a-meeting NOR ride a Star Ferry today.

I DID eat two servings of Singapore Rice Noodles (lunch time and dinner time) and I DID get a McDonald’s McFlurry.

HERE IS A PATTI 99501 ‘GIGGLE’!

At lunch I went to MY Singapore Rice Noodle Street Cafe .. MY waiter .. came and took my order.

Back he came with ‘Rice Noodles’ ..

I said .. “These are Rice Noodles these are NOT Singapore Rice Noodles!”  He shrugged and gave me that old ‘inscrutable look’.

Just then THE MAN! .. walked past the two of us.

He looked down and I looked up and I ‘shrugged’!

Then .. with some INTENSITY AND PASSION he said something in chinese to my waiter. I will never-ever-know what he said .. let me try.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING!”

HE HAS NEVER ORDERED ANYTHING ELSE!”

“BRING HIM SINGAPORE RICE NOODLES!”

I could tell MY waiter was NOT happy.  He had ‘lost face’.  BUT ..

1.  Back he came in short order with Singapore Rice Noodles.

2.  He appeared at dinner to be-over-it.  Is he?  I hope so.

Later THE MAN walked past me .. he looked down .. he grinned.
