|In November of 2011 we visited Hong Kong for the first time. This shot was taken from the only place we found that was not teeming with cars and car horns and jewelry shops. We took the funicular to the top of Victoria Peak. A one-hour stroll around the peak was our favorite day of our stay.|
|Every place we went was a jumble of shops (every other storefront seemed to be selling the world's largest stock of watches). The first day we couldn't figure out where to eat because so many of the restaurants are on the second floor, to free up street level for shops or mini-workshops.|
