East end of the island

BY ALICE ZHAO

HONG KONG – Lying at the east end of the urban area of Hong Kong Island next to Shau Kei Wan, Chai Wan (Chinese: 柴灣) is mosaic of industrial and residential concretes. I took my first walk in this area with a friend last Saturday in this place. I arrived in a torrent of rains, the sky was clad in grey, the area features the old, tore warehouses still in its function, with trucks, boxes patching up along the street.
