We got up at about 9 a.m., went to the Mc Cafe’ beside the Star Ferry Pier in Kowloon, Victoria Harbour, as yesterday, then walked for a while throughout the shopping gallery beside the Mc Cafe’, called Harbour City.

Then, we came back to the Mansions and used the internet at Salim’s place. Rested for a couple of hours, then had a message interchange with B., a friend of M. L., the lady we knew last saturday, who was dying at the Kwong Wah Hospital, very close to Yau Ma Tei MTR Station. This news found us completely unprepared. We were shocked about that and thought it could be a joke. But instantly went out, caught the MTR and approached the hospital in order to check what was happening out.

When we arrived at the hospital, saw the very bad situation taking place there. A couple of her students were attending M. L.. Anyway, we were comforted by the fact that the hospital was very huge, clean, even if a little messy because of the quantity of people hosted there. The employees were very professional and polite.

We talked one another; B. was there as well as a french man, a music teacher like M. L.. We agreed with B. to keep in touch to know how the situation was developing. After one hour we made our minds up to reach F.. In fact, we had a date for the exhibition opening at the gallery. Therefore, we caught the underground in order to reach the Gutai’s opening at the Parkview Art Gallery in Soho, Central Hong Kong. We actually appreciated so much the refreshments provided by Profood Hong Kong. Their food was nearly all from Italy. Hence, it was a great food.

Then, we went home by the ferry where we met F. V. who was going to play at the Ned Kelly’s Last Stand. We talked, for a while, about Hong Kong, about our touristic daily plan, and about the wonderful local food.

Back home at 10 p.m..
