If you guys have been following me long enough, you probably know I like to take pictures of 2 things when I travel. Long exposures and mopeds. Awww yeahhh, 2 for 1 special. Sort of. Where are the mopeds in this shot? They're doing their thing swerving around this taxi at a red light, dozens of them filling every imaginable (and unimaginable gap between the stopped cars, ready to blast off in a cloud of smoke when the light turns green. Those light trails are their headlamps. Only thing to make me happier would be if the taxi driver was having a boba. Actually I should have bought us both a cup. Taken across the street from the entrance to XiMending. It's basically Takeshita Steet in Harajuku but with less fashion things happening. Shout out to my mom who braved the hoards of teenagers with me. Also I left you guys an Easter egg. Let me know in the comments if you read this far and found it.
Chatham Drive, Hong Kong. As I walk down any street in Honk Kong, I noticed that everywhere you looked, there was no undeveloped land. Every square inch of this amazing city is constructed. Since the population is so dense with over 7.5 million people, the only way to go is to build upward. Just driving from the airport to Kowloon in HK, it’s amazing how many high rise buildings there are. I absolutely loved my trip to HK and next time I will have to make time to do the infamous “Star Bay cruise” which everyone takes from the HK bay of the city as you see in many travel guides.
