Day two has been a day of MORE feasting (and meetings). Ah the food here in Hong Kong is delicious. Lunch and wonderful conversation was in a restaurant in the suited end of town … okay so lots of Hong Kong is suited, but this was the very suited end of town!
From lunch we headed a short walk away to surprise my aunt – who was very very surprised to see me! as she and her husband were heading out to lunch (at 2.30) we were ‘forced’ to tag along. I did explain that we had just feasted over a very long lunch we were just going to talk … but that didn’t stop her ordering a few pieces for us — dim sum. So what do you do after so much food … you amble to the nearest shopping centre to walk it all off which was just around the corner from my aunt’s. And where there is a shopping centre there are shops so we had to buy some clothes as well. Just as well that there will be an empty suitcase after Bologna!
Tonight was a delightful dinner with Mio (SCBWI Hong Kong Regional Advisor) and a few of her wonderful crew. Mio was very sensible in preparing us for our trip to Bologna … we had an Italian feast!! and just look at these scrumptious meals. Tonight’s feasting also included starters … prosciutto melone, bruschetta and calamari, after which i was already full, but you’ll have to take my word for that one.
And we discovered this classy graffiti on our walkabout after dinner last night!
More on the Carolinas later but Pam Vaughan (official photographer for the New England conference last weekend) has just sent me oodles and poodles of photos … so if you don’t want to see piccies of me in action – then look away now! There are photos of me with friends, of me panelling, photos […]
