Hong Kong bird market

Saturday, March 28th, 2009

The bird market is predictably all about birds. Birds and their related paraphernalia are sold here, but bird owners also bring their own birds from home to hang out with their avian mates. There are beautiful wooden cages hanging from the trees and perched on top of every flat surface available, the noise is just unbelievable. It was really sad to see some of the bigger birds for sale in tiny cages though.

Ooh la la

I’ve got the travel bug lately huh! I’ve just come back from a long weekend in Beaune, France (pronounced BONE, oh how we punned) visiting a friend working there at the moment. We drank buckets of wine (and went wine tasting which I’d never done before, it was really fun), went to the markets and ate more cheese than I thought was possible in four days. It was excellent.  My next trip is to Moscow/St Petersburg in july but I’m hoping to cram in a weekend in Berlin too. At some point. We’ll see!
