Hong Kong 20th, United New Everyday, James Polk Never Rests

On my mind: 2o years of sovereignty over Hong Kong by P.R. China. My visit to Hong Kong was a month before that day in 1997. I bought an empty can, ‘Last Gasp of Colonial Air,’ as a souvenir. When I studied in Hong Kong at CUHK in 2001, the students were generally morose at their future prospects. Many had parents making their living in business with the mainland, while the pollution was running back down into Hong Kong. Two pieces worthy of debate are Hong Kong was supposed to liberalize China. How did the opposite happen? and Goodbye, Beijing: Chinese Immigrants Embrace Hong Kong Way of Life. Also, listen to the BBC documentary Young in Hong Kong.
