Then, moved to the Mosque, we suggest you to visit but provided with appropriate clothes. As you know it is not possible to completely enter the holy place: you can just visit the first inner part of the venue, not the whole place and, of course, it is strictly forbidden to visit the place where the faithfuls pray.

After that we visited the “Garden of Life”, the Kowloon Park. Some elderly were having their Tai Chi’s time. The garden is very well maintained with gardeners who continuosly go up and down the place to check the green, taking care of the plants and removing leaves and garbage.

We got a call from M. and had a date for today at 2.30 p.m. at a very glittering place, the Sheraton Hotel, Tsim Sha Tsui. We met M. and N. at the Sheraton’s lobby, then we moved all together for a walk.

He showed us his former police station, which is now a shopping centre (1881 Heritage), next to the Space Museum, then saw us to the Cova Cafe’ “the only place in town where you can drink a true italian cappuccino“. True; it was really good! Later moved by car to the Festival Walk, a shopping centre located in Kowloon Tong. The place is even provided with a MTR station, as usual in Hong Kong. At the Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong, you can find a lot of shops, crowded by a lot of people as usual in Hong Kong. We thouth it was difficult for everybody to feel lonely in this city. When people say “you can feel so lonely even in a crowd“, ok, come to Hong Kong and check this out! Is it true or false?

We ate at a Dim Sum restaurant even if N. wanted to eat vietnamese, but the place was closed. Anyway, the food was very good indeed. Roasted duck, vegetables (spinach, bamboo), meat, tea and hot water.

We had a very special time with them; they have been very kind introducing us to the city’s life.
