Cable Car Views and Fishy Dudes

Cable Car Views

What trip to Hong Kong would be complete without a visit to Ocean Park? I was beyond excited to jump on the most terrifying roller coasters I could get my hands on.  Though to be perfectly honest, the most stomach turning ride we got on was the cable car.

I know, I know how lame could I be? But all the loops, dips, and dives last a second! The cable car is slow… and high… and windy!

Amazing view though.

Acrobatic interlude to calm the nerves.

I’ve no photos of the rides we got on, Kryz took care of that, I was busy psyching us up. We didn’t have a lot of time so we picked the scariest looking ones and ended up on the Hair Raiser and the Flash. These rides are not for the faint of heart. ;)

Then we chilled out a bit at the Aquarium.

London: Borough Market

We arrived at Borough Market just as they were closing, bad luck (and just plain bad planning on my end). Thankfully, most of the vendors were really sweet and still entertained us and let me take pictures.

The market is filled with specialty goodies, fresh fruit, veggies, fish, wine, you name it! But what stuck me the most was how clean it was. No questionable smells or creepy bugs running around everywhere.

Does this remind anyone else of a school of fish swimming away?

And this thing?! What is that? Well Jack, I suppose it’s a Scottish Monkfish as the sign says. Ok sure, but seriously, woah. What is that??!
