Hong Kong at a Glance {2}



We also made it to the Big Buddha.  I haven’t been to the Big Buddha in over 10 years, not since before I lived here.   This time, though, we took the Ngong Ping cable cars to get there.  I don’t know if it’s because it was a Sunday when we went, we had a looooooong wait just to get to the cable cars and an even longer wait for the cable car back.

That said, we all had fun.  The stroll through Ngong Ping Village on the way to the Big Buddha was pretty interesting.  While we waited in line (for over an hour!) for our ride back, a group of young ladies who were in line behind us got some of those bubble fans and were blowing bubbles, much to the delight of the kids.  They were too busy chasing the bubbles and trying to pop them to complain about being in line for so long.
