City of Boxes

Things I've found interesting in Hong Kong: boxes - more shipping containers than I've ever seen before in my life, the built up towers of building-block housing structures, plus huge quantities of cardboard boxes constantly being moved around the streets, unpacked, recycled, thrown away. Contrast - in the landscape, culture, people and language there is a huge amount of contrast between natural and built, eastern and western influences, rich and poor, new and old, unique and mass produced. There'll be two completely different outlooks depending what side of the street you're on.
