Feeling totally refreshed this morning after a great sleep.

We had dinner last night at the Peking Garden. A recommendation from the concierge.
Walking distance from the hotel through Central Hong Kong and past many high end stores.

Dinner was perfect local cuisine. The menu was the size of a short story with many choices.
We opted for recommendations from our server who suggested,Dim Sum, Tempura Shrimp, Noodles, Chicken Cashew and seasonal spouts with garlic. All were perfectly prepared.

We are trying to master chop sticks, but after 20 minutes I was using a fork to pick up the noodles.
Half way through dinner I made a comment to Jim that this definitely NOT LaChoy.

After dinner we walked to a recommended area, Lan Kwai Fong, for an after dinner drink. The area was very lively, with bar/pub/club one after another. The area was very similar to SOHO in London. Narrow streets, winding from one establishment to another. We stopped for a cocktail and returned to the hotel.

One observation so far is that the city is extremely clean.

Our final stop of the evening, around midnight was at the Blue Bar in the hotel. Great atmosphere and very lively for that time of the evening.

Today, the weather is beautiful, around 65 degrees. We are heading out to start and explore the city.
