Sketching in Hong Kong

AUGUST 6, 2015
We're back in Hong Kong for a few weeks. It's HOT! 94 degrees and humid with tropical cyclone Soudelor gathering strength nearby in the South China Sea. Here are some of my sketches.

I’m fascinated by the elderly men and women in Hong Kong who work on the street gathering cardboard boxes and plastic bottles for recycling. Are they all from a single ethnic group? I see them frequently in Mong Kok East, one of the most densely populated urban areas in the world:
