Finally! Hong Kong

Needed to exit Thailand for visa purposes and decided this was as good a destination for a couple of days as any! First time in Hong Kong.   I've been to almost all of the major metropolitan cities in Asia now (Tokyo, Singapore, Taipei, Seoul, Ho Chi Minh, Bangkok, Mumbai) with the notable exceptions of Beijing, Shanghai, and Kuala Lumpur.

More photos, including food, coming later.   This is a series I shot as the sun went down behind a bank of clouds tonight. Classic vista from Victoria Peak,...

I forgot to check the weather for Seoul -- where it snowed today. Not that checking would have done any good...

Delighting in Penang’s Street Art

I've found the origin of the word "charming" -- it's in the street art of George Town, Penang, Malaysia. Maps show the way to some of these, but for a few of them you almost have to get lucky and turn down an unexpected alleyway that doesn't seem to go anywhere. Look closely to see the objects around which many of them were painted. You have to be paying attention, and when you discover one, there's no helping the little smile that crosses your face.
