  • Unfortunately, a lot of our time in Hong Kong was characterized by an unrelenting fog that constantly threatened rain, and often covered everything in a fine mist of raindrops perfectly timed to never let your socks dry, despite the 10-hour-long urban hikes.
    Fortunately, the fog often gave expression to the immense size of the towers, letting them disappear into the clouds as if they were endless.
    Major roads into the city were characterized by plastic jersey barriers, the barricades sectioning off parts of the road under construction, frequent signs expressing apology for the inconvenience of the road closure for the past 100-some odd days.
