On my last day in Hong Kong, I grabbed Bosco and took a ride on the Star Ferry across the incredible Victoria Harbour. The 10-minute ride cost me only 2.50 Hong Kong Dollars, which is about $0.32 in the U.S. (Bosco rode free), and provided spectacular views of the impressive city skyline.
In Hong Kong, the wet market is a popular place to buy fresh foods, fruits, and vegetables, which of course includes pears! The name comes from the fact that the floors are typically sprayed down with water to keep things clean. There are many stalls, each offering an assortment of products. Customers are looking for freshness, quality, and more variety than what is usually found in a grocery store. The indoor market that I visited also provided air conditioning – a nice break from the humidity!
