This is the first year in many that I haven’t traveled to Hong Kong. After moving back to the US in 1998 (not my choice), I spent 14 years away, always wondering if I would ever come back. Money and time were always tight, plus I was a single mother for six years during that time.
Yet when I started to visit in 2012, it suddenly became a lot easier to return year after year. I don’t know when I’ll be back, but I always think of Hong Kong around Christmastime. Here are some of my old photos from the 1990s as well as some from 2018 when I was last in town around the holidays.
