May Theme Day - Numbers

With the torch relay coming to Hong Kong tomorrow, all thoughts are focused on the Olympics or the protests of the Olympics. Here's the countdown clock. There are several, but this one is in the Central MTR station. Don't count the days too carefully - yesterday was 100 days until, but I took this on Monday, thinking ahead to today's Theme Day.

From the gloam of HK Harbor,

part of USS Kitty Hawk's battle group glares out at us all.

I suppose it's art in a mall, but it is original and beautifully set by the fountain in great light.

In Hong Kong harbor

One of the container ships that frequently crosses our path. It's flagged Majuro. I've been there and I'm pretty sure there is no harbor that it could dock in..

This ad dominates the skyline. I'll show you tomorrow how it can be seen from the Peak.
