Hong Kong is a place defined by a dichotomic reality. After just three weeks, I’ve witnessed Hong Kong’s inner struggle firsthand: the juxtaposition of old and new, rich and poor, modernity and traditionalism.
And then, there was June 4.
To observe the importance of possessing the freedom to commemorate the June 4, 1989 crackdown by the Chinese government on protesters (mainly students) in Tiananmen Square was truly inspiring; so much so that I took a number of photographs for CNN.com. They can be viewed here.
To catalog my observations, I’ve set up a blog here which I plan to update throughout my stay in Hong Kong.
