I know that Kowloon Walled City has become a bit of an overused trope in discussions of liminality in Hong Kong…but still, it’s so fascinating.

Off to the library!

Sometimes I’ll find an image or piece of information, and I’ll want to leave it unarticulated for a while, to keep it magic. Like it’s too precious to really share just yet. But I figured this barely constitutes “sharing” anyway.

Plus, one of the last nights I was in Hong Kong, I went to the Walled City Park with a friend, and there it was next to a bronze replica, the illustration on a large glass board for all to see.
