Our hotel in HK was right beside the Zoological and Botanical Garden. We spent some time there on Sunday morning before we had to check out and go to the train station.
This is our hotel for two nights in HK. Very small rooms but it was clean and very accommodating (they let us borrow an electric cord adapter).

This is such a pretty zoo. The weather was a little nicer this day with the sun coming out a little.
This bird was showing off for me - he wasn't even a permanent resident. He showed me several poses and so I picked the best one to show you.
Then we walked back to the hotel and checked out and took a taxi to the train station. The train ride was smooth and uneventful with not a lot to look at other than lots of hi-rise apartment buildings one after another. There really are a lot of people in China.
The hotel people picked us up at the train station and took us to familiar territory - Shamian Island and the Victory Hotel. Our room is quite spacious with a sitting room, a bedroom, and TWO bathrooms!
There is also a baby crib and a baby stroller which is why we're here! We are so excited to meet Tommy in a few hours! The next post will definitely include pictures of our new son.
