_MG_5425 - Version 2
On our first morning in Hong Kong, I looked out at the gorgeous view from our friend’s apartment and peered through the haze across the harbor to Kowloon.
It reminded me of San Francisco and the fog that comes in in the morning off the bay. It seemed pretty cool until our host mentioned that it was actually smog coming off of the mainland. Apparently this time of year is the worst. Above is the view of the Hong Kong Island from the Star Ferry terminal on the water. It reminds me of how clean the air is in New York, even if we can’t always tell it on the ground.
