My fascination with this place will never end. When I finally visited the site last Nov, it had been transformed into a park. Only the Yamen building was left there. I would like to think that I had a glimpse of the walled city on my first trip to HK in the early 90s when Kai Tak airport was still in use.

See you in September, Antwerp!
