Each day there’s a new headline about the turmoil in Hong Kong this summer, something inevitably hits a nerve with anyone who loves the city. This weekend areas that have been hurt have been Wong Tai Sin and Ma On Shan, among others.
I lived in Ma On Shan for two short years, but they seemed to last a decade at the time. My peaceful, sleepy outpost along the Tolo Harbour is anything but that now. Residents are calling for a vigilante watch to protect themselves. I never thought that would ever be an issue in Ma On Shan, let alone Hong Kong. Here are some photos from my former home.
