January 2010: The first group of 2010 is on their way.

We have arrived in Hong Kong after a great flight so that means we are half way there. The layover is 11 hours so we took a 6 hour Bus tour around the city. Doing the tourist thing. It does not give you much of a true taste of Chinese culture but it better than just sitting in the airport. We saw the highlights and we had the same tour guide that we had 4 years ago. Our very own 67 year old Chinese Elvis. He sang "Love me tender" to all the young ladies on the bus. If ever you want a great tour guide just ask for "Uncle Willy" at Vigor tour desk. Hong Kong is a bit more densely populated than Kamloops. Gerry has figured it out that there is 142857 people per sq. mile. We off on the last leg (8 hour) to Colombo. We will get in around midnight.

Our next update will be from Tangalle, Sri Lanka.
