playing to an empty church

New York City. Crhistmas Eve. The streets filled with people. Families.Couples. Toursists. New Yorkers. Christmas trees and Menorahs. Lights everywhere. I walked past Saint Malachy's Roman Catholic Churchon 49th street near 8th avenue. It's also known as the "The Actor's Chapel". I've never been in. Wondered what a late Christmas Eve in a Catholic Church would be like. It was empty. Aside from a
person playing the organ. And an elderly couple sitting close to the back.

Fat Meat in Hongkong

Chinese can be funny when you don't understand it.

Lucia in Hongkong

Hongkong is actually rather cold this time of year. Santas, Christmas trees and decorations are everywhere. Loudspeakers in every store and on every corner blast Christmas songs 28 hours a day. It's a merry overload making New York seem rather restrained. I even ran into a Scandinavian Lucia train in the soho area of Hongkong.
