1990: Hong Kong


December 1990 / January 1991

This was Geoff's first visit to Hong Kong while Bruce was there working. Geoff was able to tell Bruce all about the territory and its attractions each evening over wonderful meals, whilst staying at the excellent Victoria Hotel, with its spectacular views over the harbour.
The hotel was located in the twin towers above, taking up the top half of the left tower.
