A Drive In Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a city unlike any other, its buildings rising up out of the hills like ridged obelisks, its waters rippling with cargo ships, ferries, and buoys, its mountainside painted the shade of roiling green, its alleys stacked upon one another with overpasses and skywalks crisscrossing as in an M.C. Escher illustration.

I’m in Hong Kong at the moment, and to try to capture a bit of the wonder of this place, I made the above video. Hope you enjoy.

The song is “Angel” by Massive Attack. Yes, that’s rainbow and rain, part of a storm almost as good as this one.

p.s. Apologies for sporadic postings from the end of this week until July 5. Traveling is in the plans as part of a little summer break. We could use your help, so get in touch if you’d be interested in contributing.

      Excellent move to drop 10 tabs of Acid for your journey into Kong Bong.
      Make the place seem a whole lot nicer.
      Watch out thou for the bad trips at night when the Africans start following you about.

      First time I’ve seen a four dollar airport bus ride turned into an ‘art film’! No money for a taxi? Somebody needs to tell Chunky Mansions they have a new customer.
