Going to Hong Kong
Marty and I are off to Hong Kong for a week. We will attend a Passover Seder at the Jewish Community Center there, and do some sightseeing including Macau.
I haven't been to Hong Kong for nearly 25 years (I stopped there on a reverse around the world trip from Japan to the U.S. in 1981) and am looking forward to returning. My favorite memories are of the Peninsula Hotel humidor (where you can sniff the best quality cigars in the world) and the famous stone table in Macau where a treaty of friendship was signed between the U.S. and China on July 3, 1844. Will do a post when we return next weekend.
In the meantime, holiday greetings......Happy New Year and Vishu, Chag Sameach, and Happy Easter!
