Hong Kong Island Day Tour, Part 3 - Stanley Market - 4/3/12

As on every guided tour everywhere, there is the requisite retail stop. I have no idea what the financial arrangements are between tour companies and retail operations but this afternoon we were treated to another jewelry store. It ended up being interesting because I had a nice conversation with a clerk (wanting to practice his English) about the store caricatures, and also snagged some photos of our tour guide and a fellow tourist.
 Patiently waiting...
 Two cell phones...
Our final stop was Stanley Market, which was a fascinating place. I bought two sketches from a local artist, walked to the waterfront and back, and waited for the bus back to Kowloon. Tomorrow morning we head for Seoul.
