A Floating Restaurant



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

This floating restaurant is located in Aberdeen, a fishing village on Hong Kong island. We passed this restaurant while on a boat tour of Aberdeen during a stop in Hong Kong on our way to China in 1987. Unfortunately, we did not have a chance to eat at this restaurant.

Betsy and I are taking off a couple of days off to enjoy Easter with family. I expect us to be out of pocket until Monday evening, so my next post will probably be Tuesday morning. But I hope all of you have a blessed and joyous Easter. I hope the weekend will bring all of you many happy memories.

We've been to that floating restaurant on one of our trips to Hong Kong, it is quite a memorable place, isn't it?

Just as well you didn't eat inside.
Once, in Singapore, I ate in a smaller junk.
You won't want to visit the bathroom, I was not the only one who resolve not to eat in a junk.
