Hong Kong protesters with their arms in the air targeted with tear gas, pepper spray, guns and batons. Riot police 100m from Caroline’s office. Well done Occupy and students for keeping calm. Not the sensible policing we would expect. I’m guessing the clearance proper will start when most people are in bed asleep. That way in which it is done …
Struggling to explain how shite the pollution is today. See that spotlight shining down in the middle of the photo? That’s the pollution it’s picking out, not fog or mist or anything else. Yuk.
Hong Kongers! We can still snigger, even though it is covered up… Makes me wonder if the character was wrong as well…
Once again, CafÃ© Grey deluxe did not disappoint.

I was worried about biters and cockroaches now we have a terrace. There are some large dead exemplars of both in the runners of our sliding doors. So far, though, the most extraordinary addition to our menagerie is some frogs (or things that sound like frogs) in the undergrowth. Bentley is stalking and they have gone quiet.
FYI rice is not the best option. A hair dryer, air conditioner or dehumidifier might be.
The exhibitions in the public spaces in Times Square are always pretty odd but often fun and / or educational. I like Gaudi a lot, so it was lovely to see some replicas and some very clever inverted architectural models. A winner.
Between one third and one half of the business class passengers on this 09:40 flight to Seoul have opted for champagne. Hard core, but admirable.
Great photos of the underbelly of Hong Kong. It wouldn’t take long for nature to reclaim the city. http://sploid.gizmodo.com/these-photos-of-hong-kong-are-not-post-apocalptical-ren-1525905645/1526189501/+kcampbelldollaghan
