The Grand Tour

The Grand Tour, Part 5

Here There And Everywhere

Today we went all over the place, including the Maritime Museum and up the longest public escalator in the world.

The Maritime Museum documents the history of trade in the region through artifacts, art, and models. It’s incredible, and worth the time spent. Here are some images from our visit there.

After that we took the bus to the midland escalator. There was a short drama when the bus in front of had was side-swipped by a car and everyone piled off and onto our bus. 

The ride up and the walk down the midland escalator gave us views into the residential area above Hong Kong. 

Here is an image going up. 


And here are some coming down, focusing on the architecture. 

I liked the color contrast between these apartment buildings. 

Reaching for the sky. 

Barbed wire, keeping people out.

Walking down.


Two streets, visible from the walkway. 


A little short on words in this post, but the pictures tell the story, I think.
