Winter Term 2014 – Hong Kong

Today we arrived in Hong Kong, which had been a colony of the United Kingdom until 1997. We visited Victoria’s Peak in Hong Kong, which is inhabited by some of Hong Kong’s wealthiest residents. The view from the mountain was spectacular because it gave you a birds-eye view of the entire city. It was interesting to see a historic grave yard where British soldiers were buried. Up until this point we’d only seen one graveyard because China has a policy that requires the people to be cremated due to limited space. We also visited a market and we took a boat tour of the bay.
