Yeah, unfortunately, I learned that lesson the hard way this weekend...bummer! :(
Some cows had the same idea of escaping the rain as we did!
Other than that, I had a great weekend. Yesterday was Maria's birthday so Beth, Maria, and I hiked out in Sai Kung. The rain added to our adventure, so despite the weather, we had a lot of fun. Although at the end of the hike, you need to catch a bus. It was by FAR the longest bus line I've ever seen in HK...probably like 200 people. Buses came every 1/2 hour, which meant we'd probably have to wait like 1 1/2 hours to get a bus. Since we were literally sopping wet and quite cold at this point, we decided to call for a taxi. Unfortunately about 2 million other Hong Kongers had the same idea and there were no taxis available. So, we stood by the road and waited for a taxi and ended up getting one about 35 minutes later. Doesn't sound too long, but I'm sure you would've laughed if you saw our greeting of jumping and cheering as the taxi pulled up. It was heaven-sent!
Post-hike on the boat ride back...just a bit wet!
We finished off the night with a dinner party at Maria's...then played Settlers! What a great day! I'm so thankful for such great friends! :)
