TWO BEINGS SEEN/MET ON SAME DAY IN HONG KONG


(guest post by my brother Gabriel)

I've been living in Hong Kong for over two weeks now and if nothing else it's a place with a lot to see. I don't mean the sights like museums, I just mean seeing. Dramatic visuals are commonplace and I've even grown fairly accustomed to my window view from our 20th floor apartment, which must encompass at least a hundred buildings (not counting the distant ones), many of them very tall. The view also includes the smallest bit of harbour (visible between two buildings--they'll probably fill that gap soon) and on the occasional clear day, quite a bit of sky. But this guest post is more about close-ups, not about wide angles. And these are two living things I saw close-up today, one right after the other, first the man (who knows Jackie Chan) and then the dog (with legs the size of a log).
