Thursday Thoughts...Hong Kong
I have been, as they say around here, flat off my feet this week.
The wheels are moving into action for our move to Vietnam.
Meetings and lists and more lists...gives a girl a right good headache!
I did the sensible thing this morning.
I grabbed myself a latte and headed out for a long walk with our dog, Tika.
I then booked myself a manicure and a facial as I ran errands around town.
In the midst of it all, I started thinking about what I was doing this time last week.
Seeing that I am a woman that is prone to distractions, I decided to go home
and look at my photos. I really shouldn't be home, I have much more to do...
but just a few minutes longer should be ok...
This time last week, I was on top of a bus, taking in a view of Hong Kong.
I enjoy the top deck of a bus. It is a great way to get your
bearings and sometimes, if I am lucky, I can get a few fun shots.
A quirky shot, I know..but it's a bus~
People asked if I saw blue skies in Hong Kong. I thought it was a strange question.
But I now understand why. The smog (?) sat heavily over Hong Kong for most of our visit.
We did see glimpses of blue the first day and lucky for us,
we managed to be in a good spot to take in the view.
The side streets in Hong Kong seem to be where it is all happening.
A challenge to shoot when you are on the move.
The top of a bus, can put you in front of interesting sights..ones that
you may not give a second glance from the ground.
After a while, you get the rhythm of a city..you start to understand how it moves.
Could you say that Hong Kong is like any other city?
The hustle and bustle, the city skyline..the smog..in a way it all seemed familiar.
I wonder what local expats would say...
I also enjoyed the unexpected too...
but even more so, the peacefulness of afternoon tea back at the hotel.
That was my Thursday last week. Today..it is rain, rain, rain over Surrey.
The green, green grass of England is coming though.

Best wishes to one and all!!
