Keep on Truckin’
Hong Kong’s traffic flows in any every thinkable manifestation through it’s veins, big and small. From Chek Lap Kok’s runways, to Victoria Harbor’s shipping lanes, from the harbor tunnels to the wide boulevards to the dark little alleyways, people, goods and money crowd the city scape.
As pallet movers, and freight pallets in general seem to be unknown here in Hong Kong, many porters, often wizened men and women, scurry around, transporting shark fins, sacks of rice, clothing, stacked cardboard for recycling through the neighborhoods with their trusty metal trolleys. Often, one can find a trolley or two locked to the nearest fence, safely stowed while the owner rests up for another strenuous day at the helm.
