A couple of weeks ago, on Dec 3 to be exact, the rain stopped and some pale sunlight peeked through the overcast briefly. I immediately walked out of the house to get a bit of exercise and some relief from cabin fever. The Han River is muddy and swollen in this photo. It has been raining for much of the two weeks since then.
I have loved Hong Kong since the first time I set foot here during the Chinese lunar new year in the winter of 1988. I’m here for five days this time and still loving it. Kowloon is the very tip of the Chinese mainland, as seen in this view from Hong Kong island. Kowloon or 九龍 (Jiulong in Mandarin) means nine dragons.
