Daily Pics: Hello Hong Kong

by in Asia

It’s been almost 10 years since we’ve visited Hong Kong and it all feels familiar and new at the same time. I remember the buildings and the lights, the smells and the sound. I’ve forgotten the grime and the dirt, the inability of people to walk in a straight trajectory and the desire of pedestrians to find space where none exists. This was my home many moons ago, and where I met some of my favorite people in the whole entire world. We are staying with one of them right now and it still feels as if time has not missed a beat.

Wonderfully familiar territory…

Buildings in central HK

Not sure if low visibility is caused by fog, smog or a combo of both

 

Escalator through mid levels

A trip down memory lane…or more precisely a ride up escalator alley

One hell of a job to maneuver the beast

All this banking, sightseeing and exploring is hard work
