Thursday Doors: Tung Chung Market

This post is a continuation of the saga of my lost passport from last week.  Before the consulate could process my application for a new one, I was required to fill out a police report.  Taking a thirty-minute bus ride and a twenty-minute walk, I arrived at the Tung Chung Police Station.

When I finished that, I strolled around Tung Chung.  This post is not technically about doors (sorry) but the colorful and interesting sights and sounds of the wet market just beyond the door pictured here.

Okay, back on the bus.

Next week, I’ll have some proper doors.  Unless super typhoon Mangkhut blows them off their hinges.

    This brought back some memories- I’ve stayed in Tung Chung both times I’ve been to Hong Kong because my meetings have been near the airport

  3. Looks like an indoor market? Hope so, When we were in Shen Zhen we passed an outdoor market when it was around 100 degr. F. and the meat was hanging outside!

    1. Yes, it’s an indoor market. I can relate to the sights and smells of meat hanging in the open hot air. We lived in Guangzhou in the late ’80’s – ’90’s. My husband did the shopping in the market. In our early days living there, he’d go to the market in the early morning to buy meat but often returned with a, “I just couldn’t do it.” Buying eggs was difficult as well as they often contained “surprises.” Anyway, sorry for the ramble. Did you enjoy your trip to Shenzhen otherwise? =)

  4. Brenda, for the past weeks I have missed comments from several bloggers (something on my blog is “not right” and discovered this by accident) – Am glad I was not such a wimp as I though I was (about the meat) -we just went for a minute to satisfy my curiosity and were on our way (walking) to MacDonalds – well I did not have breakfast that day, that meat was too graphic! The rest of Shen-Zhen was great – had a 5 course meal downtown with a delicious egg plant dish I wished I knew how to make – and the service – wow!

    1. Hmmm…egg plant. I can ask my daughter if she knows of a good Chinese eggplant dish (she loves to cook – me not so much). I’m so glad you had that adventure. =)
