Today the children had a day off from school, so we took the train to Hung Hom to explore somewhere new. We ended up riding the MTR East Rail Line from end to end and took photos of the gorgeous murals at each station on the way. You'll notice that the art features different flowers and buildings in a different colour for each stop. What you can't tell from the photos is that these murals stretch the length of the platform...they're huge! I used to think the new Perth train stations were nice, but these HK ones are such a visual delight. I think all the locals are desensitised though; I received many a strange look from passers-by who were craning their necks to figure out what the white woman could possibly be photographing at their humdrum train station.
