December 28-29, 2007 - Matt & Coral's Wedding
I don't know about the others who attended this wedding, but this was undoubtedly the most exciting and exhausting 10 days of my life. These photos cover only about a 24 hour period. The rest of the trip will follow as time permits...

For those weren't able to joint us and those who are unfamiliar with the area, I've included several maps of Hong Kong and one of China. If you're really into the map scales, one mile is about 1600m, so 1000m is roughly 2/3 mile.

Maps

The map of China, above, shows Hong Kong and Macau on the southeastern coast of the country.

The red target in the northwest corner of the Hong Kong map in the upper right shows the location of the wedding at the Gold Coast Yacht Club. The tourist area where most of the hotels are located, is at the southern tip of the Kowloon Penninsula, on the northern shore of Victoria Harbour. The financial district is along the southern shore of Victoria Harbour.

The red target in the center of the Hong Kong map at lower right shows the approximate location of the the Marco Polo complex. The Stiglianese, Straka, and Tang families stayed there, along with the Cosgrove sisters.

The Hofers were about one block east, while the Strus', Mlades, and Hollidays were further southeast along the water. The Equis hotel was south on the island in the Admiralty district.

This was an absolutely amazing event... not only because our son married an incredible young lady, but also because we found that she has a beautiful circle of family and friends, and because we had so many wonderful people travel with us to share our journey and this day. I'd like to again offer a ver special Thanks to all who went so far out of their way to be with us for this.
