Hong Kong

Yes, Nichole guessed right - Rene is in Hong Kong.  She wrote this morning:
This morning we took a city tour and saw some beaches, markets, fishing boats, and LOTS of high rises! Hong Kong is huge, but it doesn't seem too crowded because of the efficient public transportation system.There is a lot of green in the city too and many of the hills are covered in forest. It also doesn't seem extremely foreign; there's a lot of English around since it was a British territory for so long, and the city is very commercial with shopping centers, malls, and more stores! We drove to the top of one of the mountains for an amazing view of the city. It's all spread out between the mainland peninsula and a few smaller islands that are accessible by ferry or underwater tunnel.
She mentioned that she was struggling to use chopsticks and that there wasn't a "fork in sight".
Today she will get back on the plane and depart for her next adventure.  More to come!
