This week's Photo Hunt theme has so many meanings that I couldn't resist and thus went ahead and covered two of them rather than just one! So, firstly, the upper two photos out of the four I've in this blog entry show Lantau Island mountain tops covered by clouds. And should anyone wonder, the beautiful carved triple arch is that of Po Lin Monastery, situated on the more famous of two Ngong Ping plateaus in Hong Kong -- and for the curious, here's a glimpse of the less well known Ngong Ping that hikers love more -- while the high rise buildings in that otherwise idyllic green location belong to Tung Chung, one of Hong Kong's many new towns.
For their part, the lower two photos show examples of Hong Kong's many of covered walkways that attest, among other things, to The Big Lychee being a place where people really do walk about a lot. And having a government intent on ensuring that pedestrians can easily and conveniently get about even when it rains (something that can happen a lot -- and with a vengeance -- over here).
(For those who don't recognise it, the upper of those two lower photos is of part of the over 800 meters long Central-Mid-Levels escalator that is the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world. And for the record: the final photo in this blog entry was taken from inside an underpass in Sham Shui Po -- across Victoria Harbour and what can seem like a whole socio-cultural world away from Central and the Mid-Levels, yet also very much covered by the authorities' efforts to make sure that Hong Kong is full of covered walkways!)
