As I mentioned in my 2017 review post, I traveled to Hong Kong a couple of times last year. I am sure I’ve mentioned it before, but I love that city. On my most recent trip, over Christmas, I walked through one of my favorite city parks and spent some time in the Hong Kong Park Aviary. I first found this aviary a couple of years ago. I didn’t get any good pictures due to a dead camera battery, so I didn’t share that experience. This time I made sure I had a good full battery.
The Hong Kong Park Aviary is located in the middle of the park with the entrance next to the Tai Chi Garden, which just so happens to host the monument to healthcare workers who died fighting the Avian Flu outbreak in 1997. The park also boasts a lovely conservatory with waterfall and large pond, a large playground, an arts center, the squash center, an Olympic plaza, a pottery museum, and the wedding registry.
While in Hong Kong I had a couple of new experiences and relived some favorites including the Hong Kong Temple. One of my new experiences was seeing “The Nutcracker” for the first time. The Hong Kong Ballet did a marvelous job with outstanding dancers, scenery, and costumes. The accompanying orchestra was also very good. However, I don’t think I will make this ballet a tradition like so many do. It was fun, but I want something with words.
