Transportation and Big Buddha
I wanted Ruth to experience HK in its fullest so we went to the Big Buddha on Lantou Island and also to the Peak on Hong Kong Island in one day. But the "real" experience was related to transportation--
Subway to cable car station on Lantou Island
Cable Car to Big Buddha and back to cable car station
Subway to Central
Bus from Central to The Peak
Tram down the mountain from The Peak
Ferry from HK Island back to Kowloon
LOTS of walking
Next day--Ruth took a taxi to the airport and got in a plane. I count 8 types of transportation in 24 hour period.
Ruth was in good company. While in the cable car, we saw a Buddhist monk sitting and reading a newspaper by himself in a cable car coming down from the monastery.
