Hong Kong. Day 2: Thai and Kazakh consulates, Hong Kong Museum Of Art, Kowloon City Park, Laser Show.
Monday, February the 9th 2015.
My father and cousin suggested I try to get the visa stamp at the Thai consulate. I have preloaded maps to Thai and Kazakh consulates (the latter in case they may be able to assist with extending my passport), and headed across the Kowloon Bay to Hong Kong. The ~3 minute ferry trip costs HKD$2 if you take the lower deck, or HKD$2.4 (about CAD$0.40). Boy, are these streets confusing! Half of the walking paths are on ground, half are elevated a few meters above, and there is no apparent structure – everything is kind of built where there was space. Thanks to GPS, I got to both consulates, but only to be turned away empty-handed: because, rules, man.
