So after a surreal day at work with 3 students in, the PM has introduced far more stringent measures and its lockdown: only can go out for food shopping, medical, work if critical and exercise. These will be testing times and I will look to work from home until Friday, when I’m rota’d to beContinue reading “Draconian measures 1”
Two months down in 2020 already, which means March is here and spring! We’ve had so much wind and rain this last month: I can’t imagine how those families are living with flooding or the immediate likelihood of it.

His Nan’s house has been a constant in his life, and his Mum has lived across the road for over 20 years. Nan moved to a lovely home and Val and her husband move out onContinue reading “A strange feeling”

Presents were opened, cards read and then we got ready for a little trip to London. The boys had arranged a goContinue reading “A Day for all to celebrate”
We were taken back to central and caught the ferry back to Kowloon. This is on the blue route and our final bus ride of the day. More history more shops, more skyscrapers! Back to our hotel walking to get my daily quota in!
The green route covers the North of the island with a good commentary of the history of HK. It seems less urbanised than the South, more of a holiday location. Again I was challenged with twists and turns but breathtaking views! As part of this route we enjoyed a Sampan ride- part 3
