Hong Kong (Non) Food Tour

As you know, we went to Hong Kong to eat.  But in a city of seven million people, there are lots of other things to do.  Here’s a brief photo tour of our time when we weren’t eating (mostly transit pictures as I dragged J from restaurant to restaurant).
A panoramic view of the Hong Kong Island skyline.
The view of Kowloon harbor from our room
The Star Ferry from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island
We didn't take a junk, but one could! 
Imagine a ship designed over two millennia ago cruising in front of the hyper-modern 2011 Hong Kong skyline.
And then we took the ferry home.
We found an appropriate pawn shop for the post Hong Kong Food Tour clothes that no longer fit us.
We found pretty brides!
And endless red taxis.
But the people!  There are so many people.
According to wikipedia, Hong Kong is the fourth most densly populated area in the world with 16,444 Hong Kongers per square miles (by comparison, the United States has 83 people per square mile).
Seriously, there are a lot of them.  Here we crowd in line to get on a tram from the Hong Kong Island look-out.
And a few final shots of Hong Kong from above.
But lets not forget the reasons to visit Hong Kong:
Hello old friend.
