I hear that Blacksmith Books are updating Sketches of Sai Kung for a second edition. A marvellous book by Lorette E Roberts. Most fascianting to me are the abandoned villages, such as below (you can see more pictures on the Blacksmith Books Facebook page. They’re agricultural or fishing community villages now left as people moved to the city or overseas. Some Hakka style homes have been renovated as holiday homes, a pretty good idea I think and (I’ve seen a couple) quite tastefully done but many remain vacant and yo can wander in and out – obviously as time and weather pass they are falling into serious disrepair.
