Kowloon- the streets and parks

The places of Kowloon. There is a park in the middle of Kowloon which has an aviary and also many cultural happenings. We happened to come to a celebratory Martial Arts presentation along with seeing the pool of beautiful flamingos. The aviary housed more than  50  kinds of birds.  Beautiful greenery and more than anything the people......We enjoyed being with the people. Most of all we enjoyed experiencing where ancient meets new and people blend from many parts of Asia. In some corners of the park you could see the procession of beautiful brides. Elaborate flowers and parades of people following the bride and groom. Weddings are big during this time in Hong Kong. Parks everywhere are a place of celebration  for families. Our lives are forever changed, just to be here and take part in traditions and meals.
