Taiwan Asian Trip Y2K Thailand 2001
Eurasia 2001 (unfinished)
While out partying New Years '96/'97 I met Stacy Murray and a group of her colleagues who work at Clifford Chance in Jardine House. On New years day we took a tour of Victoria Peak and the tramways.
This is Walter Pozzoli with whom I had a great time partying in Hong Kong in December 1997. Walter, originally from Switzerland and having lived in France had been studying Chinese in Beijing and had just finished his course before taking a break in Hong Kong.
This burly chap is Bernard from London who's a police photographer. We met and fancied a trip across the harbour to take some photos so we halved the cost of boat trip out.
The guy on the left is Dirk Angelrots and both the two chaps here are Germans who work at the Goethe Institut in Manila. The young lady comes from the Philipines but all three were in Hong Kong for the Handing Back in '97.
I started chatting to this gentlemen at a charity fair the day of the eve of the Handover.
As in all political changes you expect resistance of one form or another, but what surprised me was the amount of people protesting against something that shows no sign of yet giving in to democracy.
The characters along the top read,"Love (your)Country, Love (Hong) Kong, Love the People and I don't recognise the final character. I only recognise a couple of characters from the bottom line. Not enough to make sense.
