A tram travels along Hennessy Road on the main (Hong Kong) island late in the afternoon.

Streetside copy watch seller adds links to the bands of my watch with his daughter helping, at no extra cost! (although I gave him extra money anyway)
This restaurant on Temple Street was rockin’. So much so that it had an audience seated out front waiting to get in…. and watching you eat.
The shrimp was awesome, and the coke even told me to cheer up. Which is just as well considering the 30 or so sets of eyes looking at me.
….somewhere in an office tower.
It even feels…. cozy.
Jane, like myself, Loves a good indian menu. And I particularly liked the painting of Hennessy street that was behind her.
Just smoke some Shisha and think of Mecca.
Bright lights, big city. The Peninsula hotel was as beautiful as ever. (no, I didn’t stay here)
A must-see in person. The view here is almost too much for your mind to process.
The Hong Kong Exhibition center and the fading away of the city’s beautiful lights into the haze – as seen from the Star Ferry.Don
And yes, there will be typewriters. But stay tuned, as I have some truly fascinating corners of this part of the world to tell you about.

It’s great you could visit Hong Kong, definitely one of my favorite cities in the world.
Yeah. Missed being here. Was great to get out of the country too.
A great read Scott, I almost want to go there. I was just going to say,” what about the typewriters?”
when I noticed your last line. Ok, so I will wait patiently……
Thanks John. Not a lot of typewriters, but the story will be worth it.
Looks like Hong Kong is a much more interesting place than I ever imagined. Enjoy your time there.
Oh, I have a post coming up that you might find very interestingl
Sounds like it was a great trip, SK! And I dare say there would be a slew of tailors who could whip up nice shirts in no time. But stay away from fake watches! Gotta get to HK one day.
Oh, and great photos, too! The Hennessy Road and nighttime skyline shots are great!
Thanks a heap man! Those watches remind me… It is time I got a real watch.
Definitely Blade Runner. Looks like you’re having fun, you and Jane stay safe (:
Oh, we’ve stayed safe alright. Thanks Ted!
Oohmmm, mindtraveling… I love the story, can’t wait for more!
There’ll be some really interesting stuff coming up. I am sure you’ll love it.
Looks and sounds great. Watch out for the “copy” typewriters!
Ahhhhh those evil copy typewriters!
