I had to make a plane diversion to Hong Kong to get a new visa – here’s a few photos from then. Quite nice, and proof that Chinese people can drive, and do not need to spit everywhere, but it felt a bit too British to me.
It’s all just a big urban jungle really, amazingly high-density living, higher than anywhere I’ve seen in China.
But it was very, very nice to be beside the sea, for the first time in six months.
I later returned to Hong Kong, this time by bicycle. A much preferable way to travel. The haze hadn’t gotten any better though.
Sally (an English cyclist I met) and I went to nearby Lantau, for an escape from the madness for a while. Fantastic deserted beaches, and amusing signs – what else could you want?
After rather a long time, I finally saw the light show. “And introducing, the China People’s Liberation Army Building of Hong Kong!!!”
Yeah yeah, I know it doesn’t belong here, but I can’t be bothered creating a specific Macau page. So there. Christmas comes to Macau:
