Above, Steve, left, Tim Bajarin, middle, and Larry Magid, right, traveled up the tram to the Peak overlook of Hong Kong, hoping to see what the city and harbor look like. But … it’s foggy. And it’s cloudy. Tim and Larry joked that we got lost in the Internet cloud.
A photo essay.
The Borg landed a survey craft behind what Steven believes is a court building in Hong Kong — that is what the tour guide said.
The token that gets you onto the Star Ferry.
This is where Tim, Larry and Steven ate Dim Sum for lunch.
Inside the restaurant.
We celebrated a wedding at the restaurant!
The planetarium at the Space Museum.
Tim points out buildings on the other side of the Hong Kong channel to Larry.
The ferry ride took us past a sampan.
Larry and Tim preparing to debark from the Star Ferry.
This is not Fry’s. It is the Wan Chai Computer Center. Imagine 10×10 booths packed one upon another. It’s overwhelming. Larry and Steven were boggled.
The start of the tram ride.
There’s a wax museum and a shopping mall at the top end of the tram ride.
This is the top end of the tram ride tower, lost in fog.
An old tram car.
Tim, left, checks the guidebook while Larry enters the Twilight Zone. Yes, there is a Starbucks everywhere. The woman at right, with her dog, gave us several site-seeing tips.
Larry shoots a photo of a mural — this is the view we would have seen if there was not fog.
On the way down, we passed a tram car pulling itself up the track.
Bamboo is used as scaffolding.
Not sure what’s going on here. It’s Sunday. It looks like everyone unfolds a tarp and sits outside for their day off.
The clouds never really burned off.
Hong Kong is city that climbs up mountains.
We passed the US Consulate — across the street from the tram entrance.
When we arrived at the Tram at 730 there was no line. At 930, the line wraps around the building. They don’t know how thick the fog is.
A street market.
“Wrong Design.” Glimpsed from the Hop On Hop Off bus.
The bus turned a corner and there were these amazing green trees.
