One of the many islands around Hong Kong is Lamma Island. I was last on Lamma Island in late February 2012 when I visited Clement and Patricia and Merlin .. my friends from France that I met in northern India .. in Ladakh.
I went to Lamma Island with the intention of staying overnight if I could find a reasonably priced room. Well this plan did not work out. When I left the Kowloon YMCA at about 2PM this afternoon it was drizzling. By the time I got to the Lamma Island Ferry Terminal I was ‘kind of sort of damp’. Not exactly wet but quite damp. It was so cold on the Ferry to Lamma Island that I put on my down jacket!
When we docked at Lamma Island it was raining there. So I immediately got BACK ONTO THE FERRY and returned to Hong Kong and to Kowloon arriving back to my room in the YMCA around 4:30PM. I took an INTENSE nap of 2 1/2 hours and went out for Singapore Rice Noodles about 7:30PM.
I did some shopping at my local supermarket (Snickers Food Bars .. three 1/2 Litre bottles of Vitaman ‘C’ enhanced Lemon Drink .. 5 Litres of water .. 70 grams of Almonds .. a package of three 8 oz Blueberry Yogurts ) and back to the YMCA I have returned.
This morning I wrote and mailed ten (10) post cards to YOU! Then I enjoyed Singapore Rice Noodles for lunch.
I HAVE ROOMATE NOW here in my four-man dormatory room. A young very pleasant Korean man who is in the Sports Apparel Industry. Freeman is his name. I can’t think of ever meeting a Korean that I did not enjoy. He gave me his business card and we will both leave the YMCA next Monday.
I sure wish that I could upload photographs for you. But again .. I can not find a computer anyplace with USB Ports.
I can hardly believe that in LESS THAN four days .. 1150 Hours next Monday the 20th of May .. I will be settled-into my seat on a Cathay Pacific airliner bound for Chicago. HOPEFULLY I will be sitting in a window seat .. or an aisle seat .. not a center seat. Since I am using an American Airlines frequent-flier-award I do NOT have unlimited seating choices. I have been told to sign-in on-line this Saturday at 1150 Hours .. I have also been told to take my suitcase to the airline terminal at 0800 Hours Sunday morning and check-it-in TO INSURE a seat selection.
I DO have a seat request submitted for a window seat but until I formally check-in it means little-or-nothing.
Not much I know but hey .. it’s all I have to write today ..
There is no doubt that I am in a ‘coming-down’ from the trip cycle. With all the travel that I have done I KNOW THE SYMPTOMS.
