欣賞香港 My Hometown

LOCALS IN HONG KONG drink something called yuanyang, which is an appealing blend of coffee and milk tea, expertly strained and lightly sweetened. At Lan Fong Yuen, a no-frills Fotomat booth of a stand in the middle of the Gage Street Market, the $2.50 drink is the house specialty. As I savor my cup while trying not to get run over by the stream of honking delivery trucks pushing their way down the crowded street, it dawns on me that the beverage is a metaphor for Hong Kong.
