I am absolutely in love with Hong Kong. As a New Yorker I feel so at home when I'm there. But, surprising to absolutely no one, the ever-tightening governmental hands reaching out from Beijing seem in so many cases to hardly regard the "HK freedom until 2047" stipulation. What will HK be in ten years' time? Twenty? I'm genuinely annoyed that the Mainland is invading HK, although, again, I know this action is surprising to absolutely no one.
