visited the southern side of hong kong island this weekend --- stanley village. within 45 minutes, i went from the middle of downtown hong kong to a quiet little (tourist) village by way of one public bus. pretty incredible. it was nice to get out of the city, get some fresh air, see some beautiful views! and then, after a couple hours, back on the bus and to hong kong, once again.
one huge city, right behind them thar hills. unbelievable.
