I asked two of my Hong Kong friends to take me to their city’s countryside. So, today we went hiking from Sam Mun Tsai village in Taipo to the Ma Shi Chau (which literally means horse dung island). At the start, we thought that the whole path would take up only 1 1/2 hours. So, we joked that we would do the hike twice! In the end, the hike took around 4 hours, with lots of climbing. That means thigh and knee numbing moments.
This photo was taken near the top of a hill that we have to get through to the Island. The hill was filled with over-sized Chinese graves. This is different from the typical graves that I’ve seen in H.K. are narrow and tall. I will dedicate an entry to these graves once I’ve processed the photos!
