Travel: Hong Kong 2012

Hong Kong. I somewhat expected Hong Kong to be a gateway to China…..a modern city full of old world culture. Well I found a modern city, one filled with Fendi and Dior and Gaultier. A city filled with very very poor people and many newly rich wanting access to western objets du jour. Among the little laneways everything was big and larger than life. Nevertheless it is fascinating to explore, this place of conundrums.

Of course we made the obligatory trip to the Peak for a grand view over the entire city. The cable car was a riot and the view spectacular.
