I am so excited about this trip with Terri. HK will be so different from when I lived there in 1971, I loved it then. I know the block of flats that we lived in at Tung Lo Wan Road, Causeway Bay has a grand hotel there now. But I think the markets will still have the same atmosphere and I am sure the beach at Repulse Bay hasn't changed much either. Thank you Terri for organising all this, this will be the holiday of a lifetime for me.
