Stayed in Lantau Island for a few nights to get over jet lag. The Silvermine Bay Beach Hotel is right on the beach with a lovely view. Took a bus to the Big Buddha; it is supposedly the largest outdoor Buddha. Oddly, it faces Beijing. We climbed Lantau Mountain for a couple of hours, but did not make it to the top. Two monks were in the Starbucks. They were dressed in saffron drinking Wente lattes in red cups with white sparkle stars. Rudolph the red-nosed rainbow was playing on the muzak.
