Hong Kong: Kowloon Walled City Park

By the time we reached Kowloon Walled City Park, the sun was setting.  We made the best of the dim lighting and walked around the park exploring every nook and cranny. 

Every single time we visited a park during our trip, we came upon at least one person practicing the art of Tai Chi.  We have been taking Tai Chi classes at our gym in Japan for more than a year now, and were very excited to recognize many of the moves when watching the locals exercise in the parks.  

When we were about to leave the park, we stopped to listen to this man playing his Chinese flute.  His playing was skillful and beautiful.  He noticed we had been listening to him play and he came over to speak to us.  As everyone we happened upon in Hong Kong, he spoke English extremely well.  He seemed excited to talk to us and happily gave us advice about how to get back to where we were staying. 

The more I travel, the more I realize how much I enjoy speaking to local people.  It is such an incredible way to learn.
