The wind howled last night around the apartment corners and through the crevices, and was still blowing this morning. The wind blew any would-be morning fog away, so that the water in the bay showed a beautiful turquoise color with steep blue mountain tops in the distance. (My cell phone picture does not do it justice so I will take a nicer one with my big camera).
This weekend is the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens Tournament (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong_Sevens), by some people billed as Asia’s biggest sporting event. While I’m not so sure that is true, it certainly is a big event for the huge expat community in the city. I am actually headed to Hong Kong on Saturday for a harbor boat trip that the company set up for us, but I’m not going to try to make it into the rugby stadium. I see South Africa is in Pool F. And hey! the USA has a team as well. Go Boks! Go USA! Should I say Go China? : ).
Pool A: Samoa, Argentina, Russia, Italy
Pool B: New Zealand, Scotland, France, Taipei
Pool C: Fiji, United States, Portugal, Thailand
Pool D: Australia, Canada, Tonga, China
Pool E: England, Wales, Japan, Hong Kong
Pool F: Kenya, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Korea
I can now walk down to the waterfront from my apartment in the evenings which is great. I will post a few more pictures of the beach and the small marina here. A bit of a stretch to call it ‘Shenzhen Marina’ since we’re on the outlying east area outside the metropolitan area of Shenzhen !
