Fifty shades of grey

14 01 2017

After a notably warm winter, the cold finally descended on Hong Kong this week, together with the grey. A cloud of pollution which had covered swathes of the mainland blew South, although it wasn’t as bad as in Guangdong and Shanghai.


In one village, a rare bird of prey fell out of the skies, exhausted, after it had been unable to spot prey through the thick grey smog clouds.

The skies have now cleared somewhat, but the forecast is for rain all weekend… a good weekend for snuggling in bed until 1pm, lazing on the couch under a blanket and reading Andres Neuman or Junichiro Tanizaki in cafes in Shek Tong Tsui.
