Following a late arrival last night, we woke to a gray drizzle, a first for our trip.  Nonetheless, the view from The Upper House is amazing (pics from our room).

By mid morning we were out walking around enjoying the cooling effect of the showers.  The Upper House consists of the upper floors of the Marriott Hotel.  At one time it was marketed as residential space and later renovated as a boutique hotel separate from the lower floors.  We walk from Pacific Place through Hong Kong Park with its fountains, aviary, thi chi plaza, and, small Olympic stadium, then  down Queen Road with all the high end retail known to man.  We continue on to Central Market and up the escalators to the top of mid -avenues.  We backtrack a little onto Hollywood Road with its galleries and antique stores.  We make our way down to the central retail hub of Landmark Atrium and Mandarian Oriental for a great Thai lunch at Mak Mak.
