Hong Kong Cemetery, a Place Frozen in Time 香港墳場凝固時空

A quiet time at the Hong Kong Cemetery!   The cemetery is one of the earliest Protestant cemetery in colonial Hong Kong.  As most of urban Hong Kong is under constant redevelopment, the cemetery is like a piece of land frozen in time in the heart of the city.  Old, some tilted to one side, some covered with moss, some well concealed by huge trees, the graves tell many stories of Hong Kong, civilians of different ethnicity,  soldiers who died in the two World Wars, notable missionaries, famous merchants, Freemasons and a nameless grave to a revolutionary assassinated by a spy from Qing Dynasty, so much history lies quietly in such a small piece of land.
