February the first. Today we headed out to Lantau Island to get away from the crowds. It was different. The island has a "quaint" / slummy little fishing village with some great food and cool stairwells and roads that run up the side of the hilly shoreline, somewhat reminding me of a ghetto version of Split, Croatia, in which they had decided to abandon all forms of hygiene and manners.
Anyways, the island was fun and it was good to avoid the crowds for the morning.
Afterwards we headed back to Kowloon so we could catch the Chinese New Year fireworks on Victoria Harbour. En route to our hotel I snapped this picture while waiting to cross Canton Road. I loved the vibrance of all the people in the shot. Everyone is posed differently, wearing different clothes, and I feel the photo really sums up the mixed bag of residents in Hong Kong and the attitude that they expel.
