A Miniaturist in Hong Kong

Here I am in this humid, crowded and hot metropolis. I should have left last night but the flight was over booked, so here I am ready to try again this evening for a flight home. When I first arrived here, to say I was overwhelmed by the sheer size and of this neon skyscraping city would have been a diffinite understatement. I have taken a ferry across the harbour, trawlled the markets for bargains and even been to "Venice". We took a ferry to Macau, which rivals Las Vegas as the capital for Casino World. Where we stayed at The Venetian a mirror image of its sister hotel in Las Vegas. I even had some time to visit a dolls house shop.
We are staying at The Salisbury YMCA and I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the accommodation. If like me you associate the YMCA with rickety old bunkbeds and lots of washing your own pots and laundry. Checkout your local YMCA. This one overlooks the harbour, is decorated to a high standard with an excellent restaurant and is very affordable in comparisan to other similar hotels in the vicinity. Oh yes it also has a swimming pool.
Hopefully I will be back in London, UK Monday 20th September. I don't think I could stand leaving the airport at 01.00 to look for a hotel again tonight. Wish me luck with my flight.
