mong kok alley

tim and i often took "secret passageways" to other streets.
they were my favorite part of exploring the city, because you see what everyone is trying to hide, or has left behind. it also allows for an escape from the masses of people, as if you have stepped into another (quieter) city for a minute.
even still, standing in these passages, you can hear the city humming around you.
