I met a girl who was hit by a teargas canister, that Sunday the kids got teargassed in Admiralty.
She told me that she really, really loves Hong Kong, but can’t explain why. I totally understand. And almost everyone I’ve met, including foreigners, feel the same way. A very deep, inexplicable love for Hong Kong despite having lists of things that we hate.
The closest vague descriptors for why Hong Kong is loved so much have been because it’s ‘raw’ or ‘the energy’. But they are still not really it.
I know it’s somewhat inevitable, but I hope Hong Kong is never swallowed whole by China.
