Beautiful, characteristic, colorful, clean with a lot of people around impressive that only to be present it is understood (the Chinese on the other hand are 2 billion, although we must not confuse the Chinese with the inhabitants of Hong Kong do not love too much with each other). In the evening the modern part, the skyscrapers are colored with a thousand lights and signs.
My story tries to show the two faces … to be in front of a modern windowless grove, with close-ups mega stores of the big brands, polished floors shiny people in suits and ties, then go out, turn the corner and … … find one of the many open-air markets or almost where you find everything from meat, flowers, live fish cut at the moment and clean before you to clothes, the graces change, they become concrete, some old and dirty with small apartments inside, people become more numerous, the faces of people remain in the eyes, everything goes in a hurry, who sells, who buys, the tram passes in the middle of the street 50 centimeters from the people from the market, colorful signs everywhere ( rightly in Chinese) small food follow each other, grilled steam their food, chairs and tables on the sidewalk to eat or in small rooms. People…. I was reminded of the faces of the people, women who do everything from the normal shop, to cleaning the street, to be a bricklayer and bring cariole and use pick and shovel, children in uniform to go to school, and taxi cab taxis and buses tram and metro. In Hong Kong, “normal” traffic is almost absent, and I feel less fortunate, an extraordinary public service efficiency, you do not need your car. People at traffic lights, green as many ants all together cross the road.
In the evening the world of the pubs of the shops open until late and also the whole night of the young people who go out, another face still opens.
I did not say the rest of the trip you will see it in the photos
I’m not good at talking and writing I hope the photos can tell better document this city, “the two sides of Hong Kong”
