Hong Kong and Thailand

Sunami Alert Tri Trang Beach
It's been a while since I blogged as we traveled to Hong Kong to see my daughter and family. We  really enjoyed our holiday, also taking a trip to Phuket Thailand. We had a great time despite a Sunami alert and experiencing the Sankran festival which celebrates the Thailand new year. This great tradition means everybody is in fear of being shot with a water gun and sometimes sprayed with talc, the wetter you are the happier you are in the coming year. We were kept cool in the heat but were very wet!!
The Sunami didn't materialize  to everyone's relief as Phuket suffered badly in 2004. This time there was a warning in place and we spent three hours on the fourth floor and the roof of the hotel.
