Hong Kong Causeway Bay Okonomiyaki

14 May 2010

Dinner in Causeway Bay

After such a big day, the evenings activities were quite brief.
All I did was wander around the local area which was packed to the gills for a Friday night, with most of the streets closed off to cars.
Whilst eating my dinner, something unusual did happen. A European looking guy sat down next to me in the packed food court with an asian guy.
He turns to me and says 'Are you Russian?' to which I answer no.
He then asks 'Do you speak Russian?' to which I also answer no, I am Australian.
He then clarifies, 'So you cannot understand any Russian at all?'
To which I say 'I know that nyet means no, but thats about all'.
He then says 'OK, enjoy your meal' and turns to his asian friend and holds a lengthy conversation in Russian.

Now I think the purpose of his questioning was to ensure I wouldnt understand at all what they were talking about, perhaps it was some sort of arms deal.

This is a nearby market. Thats as wide as it get and it goes for 100 metres like that with no exits apart from at each end. What would happen if a fire broke out?

The sky was looking ominous, it glows above Hong Kong with all the Neon whenever theres any cloud. The cloud looks low enough to touch but it still didnt rain at all.
