Visiting Family in Hong Kong

Our trip in Asia would not be complete without a visit to Carla, Salvador’s sister.  Carla has lived in China for about 7 years and is now living in one of her favorite cities, Hong Kong. We arrived one day before her birthday and were lucky to find a delicious raw chocolate cake to celebrate.

Besides invading her cozy mansion we also took all of her free time to tour us around! Carla showed us her office, the beautiful Hong Kong view at night, took us to nice restaurants around Soho, crossed the border during the weekend to show us Shenzhen (where she used to live) and even spoiled us with a reflexology massage in a local Chinese spa.  We were happy to see a bit of Carla’s life, impressed with her Chinese skills and proud to hear all the stories of what she has lived through.

After being surrounded by so many buildings and experience so much city life we already missed nature.  We decided to go to Cheung Chau beach, which is about 30 minutes from Hong Kong by boat. There is a nice park around the ocean which is great for breathing in fresh air. The water is not the best for bathing because there are too many boats close by but it was relaxing to be by the sea.

It was  hard to say goodbye to our favorite “Asian” host. We really enjoyed our stay with Carla and we look forward to meeting her again for Christmas in Bali!!!
