I’m currently in Hong Kong and have spent the past several days exploring in and around Central, from Wan Chai to Causeway Bay to Sheung Wan.
After a lot of walking, I’m giving my feet a rest and taking it easy today. Tonight — New Year’s Eve — we’ll venture out and find a spot to perch to watch fireworks.
Happy 2015 to you!
