Just a few photos taken around the city centre over the week. Above a view across the harbour to Kowloon. This was the only day we had a bit of bright weather.
The students were occupying several locations around the city, including Nathan Rd in one of the main shopping areas, and the main road by the Government buildings. They had been there some weeks and the taxi drivers and bus companies were really fed up of them as they caused quite a bit of disruption. considering some of the things you hear about the Chinese police we thought they were being rather restrained. If this had been attempted in Parliament Square, London, it would never have got off the ground! It was an offence to have a tarp or cardboard to sit on in London.
These diagonal strips light up in the evening. While we were there, a lot of the skyscrapers were having extra Xmas lights attached to the windows. I’ve found a photo of a previous years display at BayImages.
