Refrigerators like those shown in this picture would hardly fit in one
of the standard apartments. People tend to shop everyday for meat and
vegetables because they have no storage space, or big freezers.
More harbor views. The big cruise ships come in, dock near the Star
Ferry and unload shoppers into a huge mall. Of course, that mall has
the highest prices in all of Kowloon!
Looking back toward HK island from the Star Ferry. The Ferry is
wonderful. It's a commuter taxi costing between $1.70 and $2.25 HK
on whether you want to sit on the upper deck or the lower deck. The
bench-type seats are nifty because when you are going to Hong Kong, you
flip the seat backs one way; when you are returning to Kowloon, you
flip the back the other way. The upper and lower decks used to be to
separate the Brits. from the Chinese, but now they really serve to
separate the tourists from the locals. ;^)
This was Jack's favorite building.
