    @firebombmarkus - that is great!  Looks like everyone had lots of fun! I went to China on vacation quite a few years ago and was lucky enough to see the pits where excavation of the army was ongoing.  No electronic photos (no electronic phones at the time), but somewhere I have a few still photos I took surreptitiously (you weren't supposed to take photos because they wanted you to buy their photos/cards in their store). It was amazing.  The soldiers looked like they were trying to break free of the dirt they were buried in. Living there - you must have definitely had the opportunity to really get to know the people and their culture, unlike what I experienced as a pure tourist.

    @bearwithme It was quite a rollercoaster but yes, I learned the "good" and the "bad" sides of their culture. I quote because good is not necessary good and bad is not necessary bad.

    To be honest, I am not a fan of army and soldiers but I am happy that you enjoyed the moment 😊

    Hi fbm!

    I am not Chinese but I like drinking my coffee hot. It wakes my system up especially in the morning! 

    The Chinese always drink hot tea as far as I know!

    I worked in a Bank Main Office owned by wealthy Chinese owners for 12 years. I had direct contact with them every day. There are things that they do that I won't, like eating turtles for longevity. In my 12 years there, I've never seen them just drink plain hot water. It was always tea.  

    I've been to Hongkong and not really observed this while I was there. If you observed this in China, it is a possibility that people has gotten used to drinking hot plain water because of pollution there.

    Memories Of My Trip To Victoria Peak, Hongkong

    A Little Bit Of Hongkong History

    Hong Kong as we know it today was born when China’s Qing dynasty government
    was defeated in the First Opium War in 1842 when it ceded Hong Kong Island to Britain.
     Within 60 years, Kowloon, the New Territories and 235 Outlying Islands were also leased
    to Britain. Under the principle of 'One Country, Two Systems', Hong Kong became a
    Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China on July 1, 1997. 

    Victoria Peak is a hill on the western half of Hongkong Island.
    It is also known as Mount Austin, and locally as The Peak.

    I had a wonderful time there and would like to come back and visit in the future.

    @mercerik It might depend on area they are raised in but I know for sure they drink a lot of hot water, from small ones to the old ones. I had a lot of conversations on that topic with them as it was very unusual to me. Nice pictures, by the way. I hope I will visit Hong Kong sometimes 😊

    @firebombmarkus

    Nǐ hǎo, fbm!

    I was just curious, what part of China did you visit? I might take a small trip there when I visit Hongkong in the future.

    @mercerik It was Hebei province near Beijing. I have lived there for a year. Of course, I have visited other parts but I spent my year there mostly.
