My dad did have his wallet lifted in 1998 though.

How is Hong Kong these days, I haven't been there since 1994. How is it going since the transfer? I don't imagine the Chinese would be dumb enough to mess with it too much and chance wrecking the economy.

Never flew in (I went there several times in the Navy) but remember watching the planes coming in, looked like a wild ride! And IIRC, if they overshot the runway, they'd end up smack into some buildings?

As for where I want to live, I'm happy with living in Denial!

Seriously, Canada is nice, but obviously would be a summer place. Thailand is beautiful for the beach life. Overall I would probably say Hawaii, still part of the US but beautiful year round.

You get the picture.

Ah, T.J. I have some nice fuzzy memories of that town! Just don't drink the water!

Not that bad at all all though youre definitely right about the expense. Unless you want to live in fairly crap Greater London suburb, like I do.

Well, the HK government is still kissing up to the Chinese government (surprise, surprise!), the people still do not have a vote (as was the case during British rule), but generally, things are the same as they were 10 years ago. I can't really say anything's gotten worse, though nothing's really gotten better, either.

I had a kangaroo pie once. For the americans who aren't familiar with the concept of meat pies, no, kangaroo pie is not of the same classification as cow pie.

Lots of people love Canada for the winters too. Whistler Mountain, the Ottawa Valley... some really nice places.
