Did I mention Asia is very crowded, and very fun? At night Mom and Dad, the kids, the teenagers, and grandma and grandpa all go out to eat and party. No matter who you are you don't feel left out, even a blondish white guy.
This is the STREET, it gets even more crowded in the pedestrian only areas. And best of all, not a McDonald's in sight.
Subways in Asia amaze me. At peak hour in Hong Kong subway trains leave every 2 minutes, completely full. Wall to wall people, faces pushed up against the windows, probably more people being transported per minute than LA's freeway system, all handled in perfect efficiency.

This photo was taking many years ago in Hong Kong, but I still like it (I'm trying to only post newer postors, this isn't a best of.) It's near Time Square, on the island, looking up at the buildings. I spun around and took maybe 6 shots, then stitched them together to create this shots. It was a lot of work because I couldn't hold by position very well while spinning, but I think the results are worth it. Stay posted for a modern version of a similar shot in downtown Central.
Yes, that's the sun dead center. How did I do that? Even I don't know.

Fruit, fruit, everywhere, all different types, know, unknown, all good, usually cut, peeled and packaged for you for almost nothing. For a good time, go to a local market, buy a sharp knife for a dollar, several pounds of assorted fruits, and bring it all back to your hotel room for a food orgy. Throw in a handful of insects for protein, and you've got the start of an excellent dinner.
