Some things don't do well in English. I love the name of this wet market seafood shop – somewhere in Central, Hong Kong.

The Giant Buddha sits on Lantau Island. At the monastery it is possible to get a vegetarian lunch, or to bring your own vegetarian lunch and eat in the arbor.  People are offering incense all around, and it’s very beautiful and peaceful.

I took over 1700 photos in Hong Kong and Cambodia. I’ve tried to limit myself, but if there’s something you were hoping to see but don’t see here, leave a comment. If I have a  photo, I’ll make another post of requests.  I’ll post Cambodia separately.  For now, this is my mite. I guess it’s a bit more mighty than mite-y this time.
