Excursion to Lantau Island

Saturday one week ago Jojo offered me again to stay one night at her place. So we met at the Shek Kip Mei MTR station to spent the evening together. Before we went to a local restaurant we walked up the Garden Hill just behind the Youth Hostel in order to enjoy the view. Afterwards we got some dinnernand wanted also to grab some dessert, but unfortunately the Chillazy Dessert was already closed.

On Sunday morning one week ago I headed to my next host Caz. She lives in a shared flat with three other people in an industrial building. This was really a lovely experience to stay there. Adam who is the main tenant did once a hitch-hiking trip from Berlin to Hong Kong and wrote also a book about his experiences in that 200 days. Even it was in Chinese, the book and the pictures gave a good impression about his experience.

In the afternoon Caz and me went to Mui Wo at Lantau (yes again for me). Here we waited for her friend Thora, another CS, because she unfortunately missed the ferry. We had a walk along the beach, as both were already wearing swimwear, but they start to refused to get into the water. After a bit of searching we finally reached the waterfall. As it was already late, we didn’t start walking to Discovery Bay. Instead we headed back to the ferry pier and took a walk through the town, before we took the ferry to Discovery Bay. There are living lots of expats and it felt also a bit like a tourist spot than a living community. We checked out the real estate prices, and especially I was a bit of shocked…Damn compared to that, Munich is a real bargain.
