Day 110 - Hong Kong icon.

Star Ferry - Victoria Harbour; Hong Kong
With Typhoon Vincente starting to show its edges, the rain has certainly started to fall.  Feeling quite at home reminding me of the wet season with the 'fat rain'.  As the skies grew blacker I thought in all my wisdom, hey go on a Star Ferry over to Kowloon to kill some time.  These ferries are an icon in Victoria Harbour that started back in the early 1800's officially 'Star Ferries' in the late 1800's.  The only time they haven't stopped running is WWII when they stopped for 44 months.  So getting back to Hong Kong Island was no drama at all, all be a little wet from the gentle breeze and fat rain.  Nothing a good coffee, movie and good company didn't fix when got back to the island.
