Dear Gentle Reader,
Permit me to follow-up on Monday's post.
This is a picture of a bus queue in Hong Kong, that is, a queue of buses.
Everything with a red top is a red-topped mini bus. Each one seats about 25-30 people, plus standing room.
As you can see, there are a lot of mini buses.
Hong Kong is profit-oriented city and the bus companies are private. If this many buses were not profitable, they would not be there.
Also, you can see a taxi turning down a street and cutting off two lines of buses.
What you cannot see is that that taxi stopped, after your Hero, Pommes the Wonder Cat, took the picture, so that the passengers in the taxi could alight.
That taxi blocked the path of two columns of buses. Not that the buses had anywhere to go, but it illustrates the point that the cars do the same thing as the people on the moving walkways do.
Everyone cuts everyone else off. It might be a game, but I don't know who keeps score or where to look up my opponents' statistics.
Hopefully this further illustrates the crowded nature of Hong Kong that I was talking about on Monday (50, 837 people per square kilometer or 131, 792 people per square mile)...
