Visit with Browne Family in Hong Kong
20 June 2005

My sister Jane and her husband David Browne, and their two children, Adam and Emily, by chance were finishing a tour of China with several days in Hong Kong that overlapped my time there.  We were able to spend Monday together and it was great to see them and be able to experience some of Hong Kong with them. The occasion for the tour was Adam's graduation from college and Emily's graduation from high school the previous month.

The Browne family at the Star Ferry

Emily, David, Jane, and Adam Browne in an open-top bus going to the Peak Tram in Hong Kong

On the Peak overlooking Hong Kong Harbor

The Peak offers an exciting view of Hong Kong spread out below but not much could be seen on this cloudy day

Another part of the Peak observation area

The clouds were literally swirling around us, a heavy mist, as we walked the Peak observation decks

The Brownes at the Hong Kong Maryknoll house

Jane had visited the Maryknoll house in Stanley before and wanted to be sure the family got to see it also

At Stanley Market near the Maryknoll house

It's not the cheap reject market it used to be, but Stanley Market is still a great place to pick up souvenirs

A cemetery near Lok Fu This cemetery is next to the house at the Bishop Ford Center where Charlie lived during his thirteen years in Hong Kong.  Flat land is too valuable to waste on dead people so they are buried on steep hillsides.
