I sat down under the shades of a row of trees on this fine hot day and sketched the spectacular view in front of me. On the right, I sketched the remaining old clock tower of the long-gone Kowloon Canton Railway Terminal. In front of the tower is the sculpture of the Freedom Fighter by the French sculptor César Baldaccini, donated by the Foundation of Cartier to the Hong Kong Urban Council in 1991. To avoid political controversy, the council decided to rename it as the Flying Frenchman which I think was a wrong decision. And across Victoria Harbour, the skyline of Hong Kong Island.
