Just in case you skipped town during the time of year when Hong Kong shuts down altogether for CNY celebrations, you missed this spectacle:
Yes, those are the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders here in Hong Kong during their mission of “ambassadorship” and “having fun”.
Donning perfectly coiffed hairdos and enough makeup to hide the less forgiving aspects of jetlag and airplane bloat, these ladies were un-missable in their bright orange trackies as they ran a sightseeing tour that included a visit to the 10,000 Buddhas, the Big Buddha on Lantau Island, riding on the Star Ferry, yum cha and some other places we’re not sure of.

Hong Kong drafted the nearly all-blonde dream team of these smile-spreading enthusiasm ambassadors to participate in official celebrations for the Chinese New Year of the Goat, apropos as their horse-like mascot accompanied them to help gallop away from the Year of the Horse.
We love the bastion of all things USA in Hong Kong, like Smokey’s BBQ, Eggo waffles from Three-Sixty, Hong Kong Disneyland, beef jerky, etc, so we are pretty disappointed to have missed seeing these ladies help ring in the Chinese New Year of the Goat right here in HK.
