Stanley 34


I'm not sure what these places are. I peeked inside one of them and it didn't look like a home. I did notice there were several pics of Mao Tse-Tung on the walls though.
I should add here that Stanley is a section of Hong Kong Island, far south and it's a pennisula. It was an overcast day but still it was quite beautiful. I hope to be able to revisit it in nicer weather. Stanley Market is a big tourist destination but I was much more impressed with the landscape. I think a lot of wealthy Westerners live here as well as poorer Chinese fisherman. This is the first place where I saw a non Chinese driving a car. When I look in real estate ads in the English papers the only listings are for parts of HK isle, including Stanley. The rents and home prices are astronomical in these listings- close to a million dollars USD to buy.
