.... in the comparative quiet of the beach resort hotel, I've had to move into the city area for the final two weeks of my tour. There's lots of glass and concrete, but small parks and sitting areas, often decorated with trees and/or fountains are quite common, and very welcome.
This small oasis is not far from my hotel in the area known as TST East, which is in Kowloon. I'm working in Hong Kong (the island itself) for the coming two weeks, so I will have some travelling to do from here. Fortunately the transport system in HK leaves little to be desired.
