 I took some time off during a business trip to Hong Kong to climb Victoria peak again, although much warmer than the UK the weather was overcast with low clouds.

Rising up from the bustling center HK, the buildings drop away into lush wooded slopes, this picture taken only about 2.5 Km from my hotel at the conference center on the waterfront.

These roots are amazing, they can be seen all over the peak where the jungle is reclaiming it's grip on the concrete infrastructure to form what is a very beautiful co-existence.

The walk to the peak was 4.2miles  but the elevation with 1800 feet elevation, phew.

Happy Valley must be the only horse racing course inside a city.

2024 is Year of the Dragon, the Dragon holds a significant place as an auspicious and extraordinary creature, unparalleled in talent and excellence. It symbolizes power, nobility, honor, luck, and success.

A 20 minute taxi ride from down town is Deep Water Bay, apparently very busy at the weekend, but nicely empty on an early morning weekday.
