Some Dai pai dong at the west side of the street

We arrived into Hong Kong at 7pm.  HK is 15 hrs ahead of Cali time.  Getting through customs was a breeze. We looked all over for our China Odyssey tour guide, however we weren’t able to spot him.  better yet, he found us.  Eric is a very hyper, sweet guide who let us know that he put in his effort to look for us for the past 2 hrs.  We meet up and head to our hotel, the Regal Kowloon Hotel.  We’re situated pretty close to the water front on the 15th floor. After dropping off our bags, we headed to the night market on Temple St.  It was quite the hike, but after 16+ hours on a plane, we were ready for an adventure….even though the weather was quite hot and humid!  We found a nice lil street vendor (dai pai dong) and ordered four season rice and beef with black bean sauce.  The area was very reminiscent of Chinatown in the US (specifically Boston and NYC).  After full bellies, we headed back to the hotel and crashed around 2a  Sunday.
