$26 for a sandwich??

It struck me that I should get some kind of an idea on what things cost in Hong Kong: a bottle of water, a taxi ride, or picking up something to eat. With $1 Canadian dollar = $7.75 Hong Kong dollars, it makes it hard to understand if paying $26 HK for a sandwich at Starbucks is a good deal, or something you’d pay in Bladerunner! Good news is that $26 HK is about $4 Canadian, so my heart attack can be avoided. Here’s a great site Al found for me which gives you an idea on what pricing is like in Hong Kong. http://www.geoexpat.com/features/9.html

Can you spot Rutger Hauer?

Speaking of Bladerunner, check out this picture!

Now if someone could guarantee for me that Harrison Ford will be there, I’ll be a very happy person! What’s interesting is that most of the signs include English, including the words on the road that say “Bus Lane”.
