First contact, Hong Kong

Steven is in Hong Kong for the IFA Global Press Conference. His first trip to Hong Kong. There are 12 hours before the first US journalists arrive. He opted to ride the subway, walk the streets, ride the Shelley Street escalator to the MidLevels.

Above, this is apparently one of the longest outdoor, covered escalators in the world. It runs up during the day, but down in the morning when everyone rides down from homes on the MidLevels. If you ride up, you have to walk down a couple of thousand rain-slick steps.

This tree is rooted in a concrete retainer wall. On the way up the escalator.

There's a street market on the walk down.

Jetlag caught up with Steven. He crashed back at the hotel.
