Today I realized how much I miss Hong Kong with its atmosphere, people, and all sorts of fuss and adventures that happened to me there. I fell in love with this city, and it does not let me go even in my minds.

I was in Hong Kong two times. First time in autumn 2012, and the second one – last winter. Lots of new people, daily shootings and fun adventures (I have already told you about it, right?) didn’t let me got bored.
I understand that there are lots of people who not so good orientate in a new city, preferring to take a taxi and just say the address to the driver. But this is not about me. The walk to the restaurant along some new unknown streets, the possibility to have a quick chart with an old chinaman and to drink a cup of coffee with hot croissant, discussing fresh news with expatriate Italian – that’s what I like!
But the only time, when I’ve lost, was my way to the Metropolitan restaurant, where I supposed to shoot the charismatic chef Frank Lebiez. It was completely Google Map’s fault, because of which I was just walking around, and had to ask the passers the right way.
I was late for half an hour and I was very ashamed. But friendly restaurant staff calmed me down and helped me to take a really good pictures which I am proud of.
