Not a bus, car, taxi or tram in sight. Filipino helpers had the run of the town and cheerfully got on with their day in the subways; along the overhead walkways and parks. Students were spotted napping under umbrellas in the middle of Chater Road.
Citizens sauntered down major roads and flyovers leading up to the glass towers in Admiralty. I'd been informed, the night before over a pint of Erdinger, that black shirts were de rigueur. Although not the best colour for a midday ramble I was glad I'd followed the advice - in some small way it showed my support.
