I apologize for the lack of posts here. It's been a little bit more difficult than I expected to get photos of these things that I think are worth posting, and there have been some higher priority things in my life.

I promise to get back to this, hopefully soon after I return from my upcoming vacation. I'll post something on Hongkie Town when I've resumed posting here.
