Remember Matt? He organized this expat junk trip I went on yesterday:
The boat was identical to the boat from our company junk trip just a few weeks ago. There were math teachers, a FedEx pilot, students, photojournalists (including this guy and this guy) and I’m sure a few more. People were from the UK, Ireland, Australia, Israel, Sweden, US, Czech Republic and probably someplace else that I missed.
Yoav told me about Monkey Hill here in Hong Kong. There are about 1,800 feral monkeys who’ll mug you for food and fight you if you make eye contact with them! Chip said if you have food, they’ll wrestle it from you, eat it on the spot, and if they don’t like it, will throw it at you! I’m simultaneously scared and fascinated. I must go there a.s.a.p.
Soon as we boarded the boat, one of the guys grabbed a bottle of beer and opened it with his shoe. Am I the last person to know about Reef shoes with built-in bottle openers?!
We cruised past Ocean Park, “The World’s Seventh Most Popular Amusement Park.”
It was a nice day of hanging out with new acquaintances, talking, body-painting, and at one point, singing “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer”. Here are some photo highlights (I got to wakeboard!). The entirety of my photos can be found here.
