... and a welcome day off tomorrow, although it's not entirely free since I have to pack up and move on to the next venue near Watford.
After a cold, grey week, it was nice to see a little brightness today, and temperatures were improved as a consequence. This was the scene early this morning (right) as the sun was rising over the car park !!
It's set to be colder next week though!
... is not my idea of fun. The traffic situation makes even the shortest of journeys an ordeal. It took me 45 minutes last night to do the 2 miles from the centre where I'm working back to the hotel.
The week began with cold weather but it has become a little milder since then; still very chilly though, and the room I have to work in is not a comfortable temperature, unfortunately. Weather back home is still very good (20c) but it will turn cold in time for my return next week according to the forecast - great!
A change of venue for next week, so the only day off, Sunday, will be partly occupied with moving hotels over to Watford where I will also meet up with a friend who is going to deliver our presents up to Lancashire next week end. If at all possible, I need to find a slot somewhere to do a little more Christmas shopping.
Roll on next Wednesday evening when I can get the ferry back to France!
Sky scrapers are very much part of the Hong Kong landscape, and probably the feature most commonly associated with the image of HK, but much of the territory is actually quite mountainous. The steep slopes mean that there is little flat land suitable for building, and hence the only way to go is up. The shot above, taken on Ap Lei Chau, illustrates this concept well.
Have you sampled any of the live recordings of choral music featured on the Moments Musicaux page of the website?
Or there's a Christmas Carol selection available here.
