Under the Highway 東區走廊與獅子山

Under the Highway 東區走廊與獅子山

I first walked along King's Road, then turned into the side streets and finally came to the Island East Corridor Expressway, a highway built over the water of Victoria Harbour, along the east shore of Hong Kong Island.  Under the influence of tropical storm Haima, it was a very windy and overcast day.  Still, there were people hanging out here under the highway, some fishing, some just chilling out in the fresh wind.  Across the harbour in the middle is Lion Rock, a beloved hill that represents the virtues of Hong Kong, resilience, optimism and the love of the rule of law. 

起初沿著英皇道走,後走進橫街,見到東區走廊就停下來。一號戒備訊號仍然生效,「海馬」下的維港風力強勁,烏雲密佈,但毫不阻人們到此釣魚和乘涼。維港對岸的獅子山,象徵能耐、樂觀同法治,正默默守望每一個香港人。
