Interspersed through various parts of Hong Kong are a network of elevated walkways. At their core, they provide the ability to navigate the city more easily via foot as well as offering respite from the elements. I also appreciated the vantage point they yielded of the activity at street level.

A lone public light bus, a cornerstone of Hong Kong transit, waits for its next departure form the Diamond Hill station. Two variants of the public light bus exist in Hong Kong. From what I gathered, ones with green marquees and roofs, such as the one pictured, operate on a designated route making planned stops. Ones with red marquees and roofs (pictured in upcoming posts) make stops and pickups as requested along the way to a specified destination.

Travel is a series of detours both intentional and unplanned. Some would probably prefer to skip a market like this in favor of more noteworthy sites. Such corners, alleys, and side streets are my favorite to incorporate into our routes from A to B.

She reminded me of my Babcia. Small in stature. Meticulous and efficient in her daily routine. Completely focused on her craft.
