    ... a burnt out truck stuck in the hillside. Don’t understand why people drive so fast down those windy downhill roads, it’s so dangerous!

    We made it into the city around five as planned and met our hosts Tedd and Charlesie who live upstairs and rent out the downstairs apartment to holiday makers.

    ... with the biggest population outside China, so Dulcie Wang tells us! She was a woman we met on the street who was promoting a return of more Chinese culture to the area. It was a fabulous area to explore and I enjoyed it much more than Union Square,with all it's upmarket/designer label shopping precincts. So, back to the fog.
