Lights of Victoria Harbour

Taking the Peak Tram to the top of the mountain in Hong Kong is well worth it for the view and the experience. The tram itself runs on what must be close to a 40-degree angle as it winds its way up the hillside. The view back down over the mid-levels right down to Victoria Harbour is wonderful. Looking the other way you see open ocean, making it so abundantly clear why Hong Kong must be so dense -- it is tiny.

Why Public Commenting Is Gone: I've had a few people message me through the contact window who used to post comments here. I'm sorry that I've had to disable the public comment posting but a few weeks ago someone who I have never even met went on a rant on my blog, using it as a grandstanding place to be rude, inconsiderate and untruthful. Because of this online slander (which I was unaware of for quite some time until your emails flooded in) that offended so many in this community, including myself and people I care about dearly, I've had to disable the feature. This person in question is obviously a raving lunatic with no common sense or decency.  To those of you whom his post offended I am sorry. I appreciate all of the private messages and comments I have recieved about the incident, as well as my photos, and for all of your encouragement to keep blogging and photographing, and for your recognition that it was indeed an act of sheer lunacy by one disturbed individual. At some point I hope to open public commenting again, however, for the time being though I must keep it closed because I often go a few days before checking in to see what comments have been made. I love constructive criticism just not slander and comments that hurt the good people who I know.

To those of you who can, please keep posting comments and I'll be sure to check in to your blogs frequently too. Thanks again to those of you who have sent messages of support :) I love this community!
