A few of my favorite things...

So I realized the other day that I don't think I have posted many pictures of the Hong Kong skyline which is really amazing and completely unfathomable to anyone who has not seen it live.  There is just no way you can take a picture that grasps the magnitude of how huge it is (because it literally won't fit into one picture!).  But nonetheless...here are a few shots that I recently took.

The first two pictures show the HK skyline as seen from the "Peak"...atop the mountain that is in the middle of Hong Kong Island.  The water in the middle is Victoria Harbour which separates Hong Kong Island from the Kowloon side of Hong Kong.

This following picture is actually looking out over Kowloon side at night from a building in Tsim Sha Tsui (the area where we live on Kowloon side).  The large green space just outside the building is Kowloon park where we often play.

And finally, here is the view from the window of our flat...looking out over Hong Kong Island both during the day and at night.

Pretty spectacular, huh? :)  You should see it in person...seriously.

I also took some great pictures of the boys playing this weekend in Victoria Park.  They are both getting so big!

Happy Tuesday!
