  1. John, a quick note about the HK notes. Did you know that HK dollars are actually (or at least used to be) printed by the banks who issue them? We had twenties that were printed by two different banks in our possesion while we were there. Actually, I think I still have them somewhere.

    1. I didn’t know that, but I did notice that I had some $20 bills that looked different. I was wondering why and if there were only 2 designs. If they are issued by different banks and look different, then how do people keep up with what they are suppose to look like? It seems that that would be a ripe place for a master counterfeiter.

      1. I agree. I also thought that it would be easy for the banks to just print money when they need it like the US gov’t is doing now. I guess the HK gov’t keeps a close eye on the printing by the banks.

  2. Well darn! I didn’t even know you were going to HK until I started reading.. Great entries with pics. I almost felt like I was taking that U-turn with you and Lita! Thanks, JJ.

    When did you get sick? Before, during the trip or after you left HK? Did Lita get sick, too? Bet you were just over-tired – that usually does the trick for me. I mean just a general feeling of malaise.

    Can’t wait for the next entry, but I guess I have to. 🙂

    1. Well when you get behind on the reading you miss out. I got sick on the way back. No Lita did not get sick. I may have been ‘over tired’. I didn’t sit down much at the airports, I did a lot of walking around. Like I said, it wasn’t a proper vacation, we had no fun the whole trip. I will be sure that we make up for that next trip. Next trip could be Korea for a few days, but most likely it won’t be until Feb or Mar and we’d be going to Texas.
