Hi once more -- and much thanks who registered their concern, etc. elsewhere on this blog. The news from my computer doctor is that my computer has been subjected to a virus attack -- albeit a low level virus. So touch wood that things are relatively okay now -- and in any case, I feel able to get blog again and continue where I left off with last Tuesday's photo-essay account of a Ngong Ping Plateau hike:-
that the view from the view compass was of nothing more
than fog and one often had to trust more than one's eyes
that there was indeed a trail to go on ahead!
At the same time, there was ample physical evidence
still of the landslides that had caused
the Nei Lak Shan Country Trail to be closed for a time
Further along the trail, a rustling in the nearby foliage
gave away the nearby presence of this reptilian creature
Wild flowers in bloom add color to
the general natural greenery
Near hike's end, my regular hiking companion and I
found ourselves walking directly under the path
of the Ngong Ping 360 cable cars above!
Back to "civilization" at mist-enveloped Ngong Ping village
A bus trip away -- sunny Cheung Sha Beach the same day!
Same day, same island (Lantau) --
what can seem a world away (but actually is not! :b)
