On Tuesday, Valentines Day, we gad difficulty in getting reservations for dinner to the restaurant that we may have preferred. Every popular place was booked.
We finally decided on Harlans, recommends by the concierge located in the mall near the hotel.
It turned out to be a great dinner, though slightly pricey.

Yesterday was Jim's day of leisure and also our last full day in Hong Kong. The weather could not have been more perfect. Temperature was in the mid to upper '70's.

We started our day of adventure by taking the Tram (Jim's first experience) to Causeway Bay, where I had been the last two days.

Upon our arrival there, we walked and walked and observed as much as we could grasp.

Walking through the food markets was an experience. Live fish for purchase, more fruits an vegetables than you can imagine. To our surprise, chickens could be purchased and were still alive. Not quite sure what occurs at the time of purchase but at least you know they were fresh.

We ended our final evening at a Gaia ,an Italian restaurant walking distant from the hotel.

We are packing up now (it is 7A) and will be heading to the airport for out 11:30A flight back to Chicago.( Our departure will actually be at 9:30P Wednesday night central time and will arrive Thursday at 11:45A.)

I will do a final entry with some other thoughts and reflections once we return.

Next stop duty free shopping at the airport, then 15 hours of flying the friendly skies.
