Star Ferry, Hong Kong

The best and cheapest ride in China.  Star ferry on the reader's right.

Crystal Jade restaurant in Hong Kong

This is the best place for Dim Sum that I found in Hong Kong.  It is at the Mall near the Star Ferry.  Get there early as it is popular among the locals. 

Dim Sum in Hong Kong

The best Dim Sum in the world is in Shanghai.  It is one of the three good food  choices to eat in China.  The other two are Peking Duck and MacDonalds.

Living Desert Exhibit

This is a must see if you visit Palm Desert, CA.  The Joshua Tree National Park is another must see but it is a longer trip.

Mardi Gras

The Sazerac is said to have been invented in New Orleans.  Try to find the bar that makes the best Sazerac.
I learned that Mardi Gras is a family event.  The parades don't go through the Bourbon street, in the French Quarter.  There step ladders are everywhere for kids to sit above the heads of the adults.  Kids get special treats from the floats.  There is alcohol on the floats however.
