Hong Kong Tours | A pile of inflatable poop is not art, period.

Mainland Chinese shoppers in Central, the Apple Store (again!) and the Big Bus Tour trawling the streets of Hong Kong

The Dutch guy that has given Hong Kong the 35ft yellow rubber duck in the name of art actually has some other work on display just in front of ICC (our tallest building in Kowloon). 

This is a giant pile of poop. I was thinking that this is quite possibly the worst work of art I have ever seen. 

I could not get any closer, the main entrance to the exhibition was padlocked and I was happy enough as trekking there was a complete and utter waster of time but I have done my duty and taken the photo's. 

Perhaps it is time that the Dutch artist responsible for this mess be tied to a tree and filled with compressed air until he explodes, now that would be more interesting than his work. This is NOT art. 

 Good job I brought my suitcase

Mainland Chinese tourists in Hong Kong have become of the objects of ridicule here, not least of which is their propensity for taking a suitcase when they go shopping for brand name items, they squat down and repack their purchases into that suitcase.. 

Of course everyone knows that the suitcase is now full of expensive products and they leave themselves wide open to be robbed by shady taxi drivers and the like.

In the name of research I have taken a couple of Big Bus Tours and they are just fine and they do think of everything, if it rains they give you the world's cheapest plastic poncho so you can still sit upstairs and take pictures of a soggy Hong Kong.

This is me taking an arty image of me, the building is the Western Harbour Tunnel nerve centre just in front of ICC in Kowloon West.

Still the seat of power in Hong Kong, Government House, Chris Patten once quaffed many a tart here and it is the official residence of our Chief Executive.. it has just been painted (again) so it looks lovely.
