Hong Kong is not just finance and law and trading and selling and designing and sourcing and shipping and white collar pirating.
Yes, the factory jobs left for China twenty years ago, but, there still is a blue-collar side to Hong Kong.
All those lovely, shiny, sparkly buildings?
Someone has to build them, not just finance them.
A new building is going up near my apartment; the dirty work is screened from view by a faded, flapping, blue tarpaulin.
But, I like seeing what I am not supposed to.
I also like seeing what I am supposed to avoid. Or what I am not supposed to like.
Today, therefore, is a different take on glitz versus grit, and I'm just going to look at the grit.
Let's part the curtain and see what life looks like on the other side of the divide.
That's it for today.
This is my Hong Kong, on the other side of the blue divide.
