Hello Everyone!

Well we survived our epic train journey....just!! I think we can safely say that we have never been so bored, EVER!!! We set off at 8.30am from Xi'an with our bag of day old subway sandwiches because the food on the train is just a bit toooo chinese haha and could have been anything! at least this time we got a bottom and middle bunk so we had room to sit upright on the bottom one...the chinese guys were fine again pretty much the same as the previous train. We arrived in Guangzhou at 11.30am the next day!!! feeling full on minging and going from cold Xi'an to 29 degrees in Guangzhou we were sweating cobs! we had to then get the subway to the other guangzhou station and book on to a train to hong kong which was easy enough and so 28 hours after leaving Xi'an we arrived here!!

the new hostel is probably the best one we have been in, in terms of room and facilities we have air con, a fan, a fridge, tv and dvd player and an ensuit bathroom. Space is limited in hong kong so its fairly tiny but we're not complaining!! The first night we were out walking around having a look round the local area and we walked straight in to Jason and Louise the couple we had met in Beijing!! out of 10million people that was a pretty amazing coincidence. So we went with them up to victoria peak to get a panoramic view of the whole of hong kong at night...1 view that we will never forget!!! (pics to follow soon) and had a couple of extortionately expensive beers (compared with china) down by the harbour which was a good first night. Obviously yesterday we hit the shops...well the fakes market in search of chanel bags for JoJo and xmas prezzies for some of you guys back home haha! it is fair to say we are expert hagglers and got everything for at least half price :) we love Hong Kong!!

Anyway we are in need of food and we are going to meet one of my friends from school who happens to be here at the same time!! although i doubt we'll be up to anything too taxing after we met another couple last night and dug in to some free cocktails haha :)

Love Rob and Jo xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
