Hong Kong, Macau and Shenzhen
50,000,000 people share the densely populated Hong Kong region in China. 50 million of the 1 billion citizens of China. This past week I visited Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Macau, Kowloon and the New Territories.
The helicopter took 20 minutes to cross the waters to Macau, the Las Vegas of the East. It took about that long for the casinos to take our money. But, it was a great ride.
On Sunday we went up the tallest skyscraper in Shenzhen.
They were actually holding an open house in the building, the third tallest in China. What a view, huh? In the 1970’s Shenzhen was just a village. Now it is a city of over 10 million residents.
Since I was sitting for a few hours in Tokyo I decided to put these pictures up for you. I also want to thank all of the terrific writers who took over while I was away. I hope to resume blogging on Tuesday.
