Hong Kong

After Tiananmen, we left Beijing and landed in Hong Kong. We didn’t want to go home. We wanted our China year. Others also chose to land in Hong Kong. We had a chance to  visit and talk with others from Beijing.  We were all a little worried/interested/fascinated – and ready to see what happens next.


Henry and I enjoyed the high tea at the Peninsula Hotel and spent a lot of time wandering around the sections of Hong Kong.

Boat Race

It was fun to watch the dragon boat races, and we enjoyed taking trips on boats. We were enjoying Hong Kong but we were also preparing to visit our daughter Betsy who was working in Kenya. She had been living and working there for two years, and we knew she would be leaving there soon as her Peace Corps time was almost up. Happily we would get the benefit of actually seeing her life in Kenya.
