Ghost Town


Wonderful blue sky in Hong Kong as temperatures lower… nice time for a hike. Today we’re going to the lower left corner of the first picture:

And as often, Hong Kong is full of surprises… This time it’s a “Ghost Town” A0002709

It’s actually hard to say wether this is entirely a ghost town or not, I did not see many human beings, but I did see small gardens, some recently repainted houses.
