I got air conditioned on…

One thing that drives me absolutely crazy while walking around Hong Kong is getting air conditioned on.  What is this you may ask (I am sure all the Hongkongers would know in an instant even if I don’t know exactly what they call it)?

If you look at the picture below you will see the large number of external air conditioner units outside the windows of apartments and businesses.  Well during this heatwave people just have these ac units cranking and each of these ac units drips water that falls way way down to the sidewalk where people walk.  So there you go enjoying the ol’ Hong Kong and then drip drip on your head.  Let me tell you my friend, it brings you down…it brings you down.

As you get a little more Hong Kong-wise you know to look at the sidewalk ahead of you and avoid places where suspicious puddles lurk on the hot pavement.   That water didn’t come from heaven.

And while we are on the subject of pedestrian issues–hey you people texting on your cellphones while ‘walking’ down the street, stop it!
