Victoria Harbor



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Victoria Harbor, Hong Kong, is one of the world's biggest and busiest harbors. This picture was taken in 1987 from the Kowloon side of the harbor looking across to the Central District of Hong Kong Island on the opposite shore.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.

Interesting picture! I think there are quite a few new buildings there after 23 years.

Beautiful! A good friend of mine is teaching in Okinawa. He just returned from a trip to Singapore. I'm loving his photos from that part of the world.

I love it when you post your Asian pictures! And that new header is lovely! I'm noticing all those little houses way up on those hills! Wouldn't want to live there!

I remember looking out my hotel window at 5am and people were doing tai chi outside. It was my first time on a hydro plane boat (is that what they call them?) That was some smooth ride.
I wonder how much things changed since Hong Kong went back to the China and if the people are happy?
