Unfortunately I have taken ill with what seems like flu or a very bad cold. I was so exhausted yesterday that I ended up going straight to bed. I am now in my hotel in Hong Kong, still feeling rough.
Yesterday morning Gir took me to see the reed-flute caves. I have never been into a cave before, but what I saw was beyond words. The caves were illuminated with coloured lights, but the natural structures were incredible, some forming gigantic columns. It was like being inside a gothic cathedral!
Tomorrow I fly to Dubai and then to Manchester.
