Ian and I went on a tour of the galley from which the 3500 people on board were kept constantly fed with masses of food and drinks. The tour was at 11 am so most of the cooking had already been done and the dishes were ready for the last minute touches. The main chef is apparently Indian and the indian food on the ship is very good so I asked for the eggplant curry recipe and plan to cook it when we get home. Computer programs are used to track the orders and supply of food to the eating areas. Speaking of technology, the internet was very poor on the ship whch is why these posts are being stacked for uploading when we get internet on mainland China.
Unfortunately the ship didn’t get into the port of Hong Kong until about 10pm. There was a hold up with leaving the ship and the weather started becoming worse with wind and rain. We braved the conditions on deck 12 to watch the docking but decided to leave our nighttime visit to Hong Kong until the morning excursion.
