Sketching Hong Kong 24 - 30 March 2017

Sketching Hong Kong
This is my first sketching trip in Hong Kong. I have worked here from 1989 - 1991 but during my stay I can't find time to sketch because too busy with work ( just an excuse ).
The trip was fruitful and productive, catch up with old friends and making new ones .

Somewhere in the western part of Hong Kong Island.

My hotel is not too far from here.
