Of course, this is not to say that everything's peachy keen here by any means. And even on the Wuhan coronavirus front, anxiety levels have been raised by there having been a total of 16 new cases over the past two days (all of which were imported and actually involved returnees who had flown back on the same plane from Pakistan).
Still, I think this is a good time to serve up some reminders of Hong Kong's physical beauty -- as seen not on hikes (which I've not been on for a few weeks now because the weather's been on the rainy and gloomy side recently) but on urban walks. For here's the thing: I know that Hong Kong is its people but it also is a particular place that really has its own unique allure that I hope the Communist Chinese regime and its quislings won't be able to completely destroy, however hard they try...
It pays to look up from time to time when walking around in Taikoo Shing :)
View across Victoria Harbour from Quarry Bay Park
How idyllic it can all seem, given favorable circumstances
Buildings, mountain, people, sea (or, okay, harbour!) and sky
View across Victoria Harbour from Kowloonside,
specifically the Hung Hom waterfront promenade
Yes, fishing boats still can be sighted in Victoria Harbour!
Yes, I think there's beauty to be found in a concrete jungle
(as well as in the more natural parts of Hong Kong!)
And, actually, it's not that hard to catch glimpses of the greener side
of the Big Lychee even when you're right in the concrete jungle... :)
