Wisdom from the Road #16

On roads less traveled
Or alleys and pathways off the tourist path...
Explore an alley (but be safe).
The alley could be dingy,
but there might be a pot of gold at the end of it.

A pot of gold...or maybe not.
While wandering in Hong Kong, my friend and I spontaneously decided to turn right ("Hey, let's see what's in here!). At the end of the alley, we made another right turn and, lo and behold, found a cluster of restaurants filled with locals! A terrific dinner, thanks to our brilliant decision making skills: restaurant selected based on eenie meenie miney mo and dinner chosen based on pictures since we couldn't read Chinese. It was one of our best finds that trip. (But don't ask me where it was...I couldn't remember. Unfortunately.)
