There it was.
A day too late.
The moon that belongs to the Chinese
wasn't for me to see
the day they all saw it.
I wonder if the Feng Shui masters
would approve of the way I shot it?
There's the Bank of China bank tower.
By architect IM Pei.
The dragons don't like that building,
according to the Feng Shui forces.
It has too many sharp angles.
Not boding well for business.
China is doing quite well at the moment.
But it might be better to wait and see.
The taller building to the right
is the tallest of the two IFC towers.
It houses a mall with the most exclusive brands on earth.
It's one of the most prestigious office buildings in Hongkong.
It's part of the complex you end up in when taking
the Airtrain from the airport.
This could be your first impression of this city.
There are hotels and restaurants, cinemas,
and just about everything you'd ever need.
As a matter of fact,
you could well fly into Hongkong,
go to IFC,
spend a week,
and then go back.
You could claim to having been in the real Hongkong.
As modern as it is.
Or you perhaps haven't been in Hongkong.
And like me
you'd miss the Moon Festival.
