Hong Kong Pt. 3 (Peng Chau)

Peng Chau is a walking only island, making all the heavy lifting infrastructure quite interesting. 

There are numerous antenna clusters around the island, of varying quality.

Overrun by jungle, the communist infrastructure sits abandoned atop a hill overlooking the city center.

Well, not totally abandoned. There are cell transmitters atop the roof. 

 
 

Fire beaters. Cool.

Always good advice.

Commie pinkos!

There was an angry dog among the farm plots, perhaps this was relevant.

 
 

The highest point on the island.

 

The local plumber has a sweet ride.

 

Not as such I presume.

Found some British expats when I was searching for a ferry ride to Lantau. I helped them move a table during my wait, for which they bought me a couple beers.

A pull tab! 

We picked up this character on the way to the water. His bike was quite the source of conversation among the locals.

The crusty British expat heard below.

The informal ferry. Mostly for school children, it also took monks to their isolated jungle pier- which I followed them to.

 

It wasn't much to look at, but the hike was nice. I eventually left via a barren jungle path to find the ferry port on the other side of the 'mountain'. 

 
 

I was damn hungry by the time I got back, so I opted for the scary ferry noodles. They weren't good.
