Today I did make it to the Wan Chai Cemetery. But to my surprise, it is an Islamic cemetery. And it shares a border with the Sikh Temple. So let’s see how ethnic Hong Kong is: I’m a western person in China sitting in a Muslim cemetery drawing a Sikh temple. I think that covers almost every demographic. And I have to say that this was one of the most difficult drawings yet. The smell of curry coming from the temple had me jumping up from my seat more than once. It’s too bad this blog doesn’t have a “scratch and sniff” function. There is no doubt in mind what I’m having for lunch. 😉
I enjoyed the warning signs at the entrance to the cemetery also. Especially the one that said “beware of snakes”. I’ll definitely keep an eye out.
