The movies have taught us that Hong Kong is a soaring city of gleaming steel and glass, filled with super heroes, secret agents and “bullet time” action heroes. But in between the skyscrapers is a real life that’s far more interesting than the Hollywood make believe. People talking, people doing, people speaking, people being. Pause for a moment and glance down an alleyway and you will see the stalls and stands where people shop and talk and eat and meet. Where shoes are heeled, flowers sold, watches repaired and chops carved. Life, like iron rich blood, flows through the arteries and capillaries between the towers of steel and glass.
