Never doubt the beauty of a countryside view, if you have one!

I don't see how they stand it.  I would go insane.  So glad I don't live there.

People keep having a dozen kids so we can all live like this.

Hello Mega-City One.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

The gap between the rich and the poor exists in Hong Kong just like everywhere else.  All of these pictures are taken in the poor part of Hong Kong.  While many of the rich do live in apartments, they are much bigger than these cubicles.  Furthermore, the super-rich lives in mansions that are even bigger than the property size of these buildings.  Don't be fooled by these pictures that only represent a small part of Hong Kong.
