Down from the Mountain

from the country ...

This is the foggy view of the mountains as the bus slowly chugged its way down. What was supposed to be a 4-hour bus ride turned into 7 1/2 hours. The driver said he would go slow because of the rain. It didn’t help that there was an accident on the road that halted traffic for a good hour or so. I seriously thought I’d miss my overnight bus ride (another one) to Hong Kong. Good thing I didn’t. It was a very long trip but I’m finally here in the city. This morning, I walked the familiar streets of Hong Kong where roads, cars, people, shops, noise, buildings, buses, street signs combined to help welcome one into its lively fold.

Tomorrow, I fly to Manila!

... to the city
