Its not all training...

We did have the previous day off (see below) and we made the most of it.
We got an early start up to the peak. This it is quite an adventure. The tram goes up at a step angle. Doug is a little scared of heights and was not comfortable. When we got to the top, words cannot describe the view. We ate breakfast at a ritzy restaurant overlooking the city and harbor. The haze was bad but lots could still be seen.

We left and went to Lantau Island where the Po Lin Monastery is. The Po Lin is very famous for its 30 meter high Bronze Buddha. Lots of steps up to the Buddha. We also went to the temple grounds and did our Tai Chi. It was quite and experience.

Kevin and his parents took us to a restaurant in Kowloon City by the old airport. This was the best meal we had so far and one of the least expensive. Kevin’s family treated us like one of their own. They toured us around town and told us they thought of us like family. It was the perfect ending to a great day.
