Made it!

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

So I got to HK safe and sound and met H and J too which was ace, we've been bombing it around for the past couple of days which has been good cos it got me knackered so I haven't suffered too much with Jet Lag.
Got my Chinese visa yesterday shortly after visiting the worlds biggest sitting down brass outdoor Buddha which was good despite all the conditions to its fame!
I also bought a camera, proper nice one for 90 quid including a 1 gig card which is rather excellent, the ridiculous amount of high tech shops here is somewhat daunting and you haggle almost everywhere even in the department stores. However Hong Kong is EXPENSIVE, it's like I never left home, its a pretty cool place and the high rises are impressive but I couldn't stay here for much longer than 3 or 4 days there's not a massive amount you can do on a budget so I'm getting a train to the mainland tomorrow to immerse myself in the ridiculously cheapness of China.
Helen and Jamie fly home tonight so I'm properly on my own from here on out, pretty exciting actually!

Will upload some photos when I've taken some...
