Village walk

Every day, when I get off the ferry, I see a lot of my fellow commuters getting on their bicycles and heading for parts unknown. So we decided to check out just where they were headed. We walked down Mui Wo Rural Committee Road (just how rural is that name?) and found some sweet little villages behind the beach.

There were so many houses just crying out for a renovation that will make them wonderful minimalist homes. And there were also interesting villages giving you an idea of village life before the big bad city beckoned the young people: Pak Ngan village has a small square for villagers to play badminton or just hang out.

But there are some McMansions around too. Maybe a legacy from the older generation updated by the younger folks?
