It has been raining quite a bit here in Hong Kong. The last two days have been beautiful, but before that we had rain almost daily. Everyone uses umbrellas here. Not that many hoods on coats. Young, old, businessmen and women, domestic helpers all use the umbrellas. Being extremely tall compared to the general population, the umbrellas hit me right about the height of my neck, so walking along on the narrow sidewalks is difficult and sometimes dangerous.
