Hong Kong | Central and Soho, Oh My!

We spend alot of time walking here. One of the many perks of not having to drive, I suppose. Just a few snapshots of city life here… That’s just a small portion of Central. (Similar to Chicago’s loop) The IFC is on the right – one of HK’s famed buildings and probably my favorite. And […]
