I had a stopover in hongkong. It took me quite some time to realise that the roads were actually sealed off, due to all these gantries.
Support poured in via different forms. Not all came in the form of kicking a big hoo-hah.
Office workers who came down after knocking off and packed their dinner to eat them while sitting along the road.
Students reading their books quietly.
Speakers placing their point across to an audience without screaming their lungs out.
Different religious groups having small booths, doing their own form of praying to whoever that is up there.
Interesting sight for a tourist who had no intentions of walking in, except to see if there was a discount going on, hence the huge crowd.
