My second and third days of hiking in Hong Kong, both on the Hong Kong Trail, offered a surprisingly bit of seclusion considering that I was never more than a couple of kilometers from large urban areas (if even that?).
Yet at times it still looked and felt (if not always sounded) like nature, with snakes and spiders and even a few butterflies hanging around.
Then, at the end of stage 2, a nice hill-side view of the harbour at Aberdeen for about the last two kilometers of the day’s walk.
Once I got into Aberdeen, as I was walking downhill towards the bus station to head back toward Matt’s part of town, there was even a really nicely placed cemetery overlooking the high-rises of Aberdeen.
I only managed to finish the first 3 of 8 sections, but that’s just another good reason to head back to Hong Kong sometime soon!
