Hong Kong 2019

Here are seven pictures from my visit, each with a caption. Most are of the island, as that is where my family lived from 1969 to 1972. When our family arrived large demonstrations had just ended – in favor of Mao Tse Tung’s Cultural Revolution. This time the large demonstrations began the day after I left. Good timing!

it shows up in the pictures...I am a US citizen (born in California), though spent my childhood through high school living primarily in SE Asia, giving me a deep view of both East and West.
