This week we have been celebrating the Lunar New Year in Hong Kong. This means I've spent less time on the MTR and more time relaxing in coffee shops and watching the festivities. I've seen far more guide books this week than I normally see around HK, especially in the hands of visitors from the Mainland who have come to spend time with their families. Last night on my way home from the fireworks I passed a young girl who was walking and reading at the same time (my favorite kind of person). She was reading The Roman Mysteries by Caroline Lawrence. Other than that I saw two people with Chinese books and that was it.
