Most people in Hong Kong don’t even look twice at us. They are used to foreign visitors. But when we went to check out the Avenue of Stars (think Hong Kong version of the stars in Hollywood) the tourists from mainland China went crazy over our boys!
Most people mistake our boys for twins. They are pretty much the same size. Women were coming up to them and touching their cheeks and posing for photos! The boys had no idea what all the commotion was about and they were not impressed with strangers touching them. We graciously posed for photos and my ham of a husband was doing Kung Fu moves in all of the pictures! I can just imagine the photos these people are bringing home…two unsmiling, glaring boys, one crazy white guy doing Kung Fu, and me on the side laughing my ass off!
I wish I would have had the sense to take a picture of the mayhem but I was too busy being amused by the spectacle we were a part of.
When we got to Hong Kong airport the same thing happened with a group of young women. Mike was taking the pictures for them so he got one for us too!
The girls only wanted the boys in the photo but my boys refused to be in it unless I was there with them. I wonder how many photos of us are going to be floating around Facebook?!
