Matt’s visit to Hong Kong

I’ve been meaning to post more photos from Matt’s 2007 trip to Hong Kong.  Since I have no food news to report today I’ll do that here.  We have: Aaron, Matt’s cousin and host, with his friend, Tracy, in Shenzhen, and next Matt in front of the Hong Kong skyline.  Matt spent his days roaming around all the nooks and crannies of Hong Kong.  He took the MTR subway to get close to where he wanted to be and then went off by foot.  He wanted to be sure to make it to non-touristy sections of town so he could eat authentic, local food, which he enjoyed, apparently being seated with random diners and then pointing to dishes on other tables that he wanted to try but didn’t know by name.  Evenings were spent with his cousin and various subsets of his circle, going out to eat and to the markets and whatnot.  Matt said there was a father and son food cart establishment near his cousin’s apartment that sold snacks, like BBQ pork buns, shrimp rice noodles and fried taro, and that he had something from the cart each day.  I believe it.
