Oh so modern
Concrete jungles oppress me. Physically it feels like an assault – the first time I stepped out onto the streets of Hong Kong and came face to face with her collection of sky scraping towers (after having just left the magical dream that was Shanghai) I actually felt like something was pushing against my chest and I couldn’t breathe. I think that if one has a great job and social life in Hong Kong, then it is probably a happening, electric and dynamic place to live. But to visit and spend time for a few days, it’s one of those places I couldn’t fall in love with very rapidly. Still, she was a photogenic city and here are some of her memorable quirks.
Though we were there only for a few days and I felt a tiny bit disorientated from it all, it was clear that there was a lot to see and do in Hong Kong which we didn’t get to cover satisfactorily. Hope you enjoyed this very brief visual soundbite which probably didn’t do the city the justice it deserves – if we were ever to return and stay longer, will try to rectify that!
