A Taste Of Hong Kong

I recently spent a couple of balmy days visiting Hong Kong. My experiences there are hard to sum up in words. Instead, I have compiled a vlog with some of the highlights of my time in Hong Kong. I was blessed to be hosted by a dear friend, Eleni. She was so kind and hospitable. She knew where all the hot spots (and air-conditioned spots) were. 

My time in Hong Kong was short but will forever leave its mark on me. I will now always associate swelteringly hot weather and a plethora of ice cream sandwiches with Hong Kong. The best ice cream sandwich I enjoyed during my trip was from Elephant Grounds Cafe in Sheung Wan. I chose their flavour of the week, the “OG Espresso Fudge”. This option consisted of a coffee chocolate chunk ice cream, made from their own house espresso, sandwiched between two butter cookies, and then finished with crushed raw almonds. It was the perfect treat for a hot day touring around.
