Wanna Get Away?

In the midst of studying for finals, writing papers and preparing presentations, some friends and I found a little time to visit Cheung Chau Island for a morning.  Having been stuck in the city for so many months, it's a much needed study break.

We first boarded a ship and sailed with produce and meet...

...definitely not a usual traveling companion.  But rocking by the dock and catching the Hong Kong skyline from a distance was a welcomed sight.

Once we arrived, we borrowed some bikes (only 20HKD for an entire afternoon!) and explored the little fishing village/island.

The vibe of Cheung Chau is definitely a lot more different than Hong Kong island.  Since it is mostly a fishing village, seafood filled the streets...

...finally ending up on our plates

We ordered twelve mostly seafood dishes and 12 bowls of rice for only $538HKD. (that's less than $5USD per person)  Food in America will never taste the same again.
