Mong Kok, Hong Kong

// Gaze up.
// Swallowed.
// Jagged teeth of the city skyline surrounds.
// Dizzy.

Yellow construction hard hats in Hong Kong

// Humans, like ants.
// Propel progress.
// Push forward.
// Power.

Mong Kok, Hong Kong

// Consume.
// Produce.
// Live.
// Be.

Near Central Plaza, Hong Kong

A bird competing with human progress in Hong Kong

// Subways smooth and chic.
// Dazzle.
// Cutting edge design.
// Create.

Subway in Hong Kong (Causeway Bay)

// Pushed away.
// Out of sight.
// Obsolete.
// Waiting.

Mong Kok, Hong Kong


Dropped my visa application off to the Chinese visa office today. No big dramas. I had my flight and hotel bookings sorted. No worries. Picking the visa up on Friday.

Hong Kong is mad.

Hi Rob, You do not have to put your one foot so in front of the other. You are not on the skate-board. (Just teasing) Hope your Visa for China in China after crossing a border post from China to China will be issued without delays. Awesome trip.

These pictures of Hong Kong remind me of Tokyo a bit. I am sure you will enjoy being back on the open road soon…

Hong Kong is certainly go, go, go but I've always enjoyed my visits there.

Good to here there is no problem with the visa application. Enjoy your Hong Kong (in China) stay before you head off to continue your skating (in China) to Shanghai!

I found a interesting skateboard clip on the internet.

Amazing what some guys can do ! It seems one guy wants to go all the way backwards again and a boy is probably practising to

come "down under" ! Enjoy ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MM0UTPTMsIM

Take care and always remember HE cares for you! Markus
