Nature Hong Kong: 4May2008

Chang Chou (长洲)

At least 5 friends said they wanted to see me off at airport, but in the end, only Ah Fat turned out.
But it is ok, afterall, it was 5am in the morning.

Chang Chou (长洲), the outer island of Hong Kong.
It is still a fishing village and many of my friends don't dream to see this kind of 'view' in the modern skycrapers-filled Hong Kong.
This island is the hometown of the only Hong Kong Omplypic gold medallist. Forgot her name ...

It was the yearly Bun Festival (抢包山).
The real event will be on a few days later and there was a carnival before that.
The bamboo structure is where the bun will be put.

We didn't get to see the 'real' huge bun mountain, so we would satisfied with this small one.
A friend asked, who is this hot chic?
Erica, my buddy when i was an exchange student in Hong Kong University.
It was ... 6 or 7 years ago.

We went hiking and cave exploring on the island.
The weather was very hot, may be 28 degree celcius.

The island is very big and it would take at least 3 or 4 trips to get to all the nature trails.

Finally, this is how people think Hong Kong "should" look like.
